Hey, Freddie here!
I am back with the final installment of the two-part series "5 Must-Learn Plectrum Bass Lines"! If you haven't already checked out. Make sure you check out part one of this video series.
In part two, we're going to dissect the iconic bass lines of "Parallel Universe" by Red Hot Chili Peppers (all thanks to the virtuoso Flea) and the timeless classic "Roundabout" by Yes, featuring the incomparable Chris Squire.
By the end of this lesson, I hope we can start to think outside the box and give picks a chance! Some folks say using fingers is the way to go, but let's shake things up and see what picks can bring to the table. It's not about choosing one over the other – it's about having more tools in our musical toolbox. Picks can add a cool punch and make our bass lines sound different and awesome, helping us serve the song in a unique way. So, instead of sticking to the same old routine, let's be open-minded, try new things, and see how picks can add some extra flavor to our bass-playing adventure. It's all about having fun, making our music stand out, and serving the song like a pro!
So what's your final verdict on the pick? I'd love to see your thoughts down below!
I'll see you real soon!
