How To Play Slash Chords On The Bass Guitar

James Eager Bass Guitar Theory, Riff Masters Bass Course

Hey Groove Masters,

Let’s talk slash chords… I’m not talking about anything to do with the lead guitarist from Guns ‘n’ Roses! (Although I’m sure he’s played a few in his time…)

These fundamental concepts are the backbone of some of the most beautiful chords sequences and bass lines around. However, they can cause massive confusion.

Today's lesson shows you the simple rules all bass players need to know. These are the ideas that help create the bass parts musicians like Paul McCartney & Pino Palladino are famous for.

In this video you'll discover:

  • What the right bass note to choose is
  • Why these chords create bass beautiful lines
  • How to construct fills over slash chords

As always, keep groovin' hard...
