Hi, James here!
I've got a question for you guys... When can you call an artist "GREAT"? If you ask me, it's when their bass lines are UNFORGETTABLE. That's why I think Michael Jackson is one of the greatest artists of all time. His songs transcend time and possess versatility that makes his work absolutely timeless. Most of all, his bass lines can be simple OR complex.
For today's lesson I name the 5 killer bass lines of Michael Jackson (from easy to hard), which are-"Bad", "Billie Jean", "Thriller", "Beat It", and "Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground)". I also break down these bass riffs and give a tutorial on how to play these iconic bass lines.
Hope you had fun rediscovering MJ's groovy songs! I'll see you in the next video!
