Hey, James here…
It’s so true…
… and the longer I’ve been playing bass the more I see how right Dave was...
I’ve told this anecdote a million times but I keep coming back to it time and time again.
Back in 1993 A friend of my dad’s who was a bass player called Dave told me “The beauty of playing the bass is it can be as simple or as complex as you like”.
When you think about some of the greatest bass lines in the world aren’t complicated.
That concept has inspired me to put a new series together called:
Simple, Funky Bass Lines for Beginners
In this series I’m going to show you a simple bass that use a couple of important bass playing techniques that sound super cool.
As always 100% real world stuff.
What’s more, I'm going to try something else inspired by a cheeky feature I just discovered on YouTube.
I’m going to put the backing track at the end of the Youtube video so you can practice along…
If you discover the track is too fast you can use the speed control in the Youtube player to adjust the tempo.
Super cool eh?
Keep on groovin’ hard,
