Hey, James here…
Have you ever had the feeling that music is something you’ll just never quite ‘get’?
You might be surprised to hear me say I’ve experienced that feeling so many times.
Strange right? I’m supposed to be the teacher here…
But rewind 20 years when I was climbing the ranks, learning my craft, I had that experience plenty of times.
So I get it.
However there was one teacher I studied with that just had this ‘knack’ of breaking things down and showing me the stuff that really mattered.
Often things were never as complicated as I thought they were.
They were always simple.
Over the past few years I’ve spotted one theme time and time again…
Students struggling to create bass lines.
Now I’m not talking about copying a piece of tab parrot fashion…
… but actually knowing the simple elements that enable a bass line to be created from scratch and perfectly fit the song.
Here’s the thing: it's not complex.
Today I want to share a simple 3 step formula which allows you to get playing bass lines in minutes.
What’s your biggest challenge when it comes to playing and creating bass lines? Be sure to let me know in the comments...
Keep groovin’ hard,
