I’m gonna show you some fun beginner bass riffs that you don’t stand a CHANCE of f***ing up.
1.) Talking Heads – Psycho Killer (0:21)
2.) Green Day – 21 Guns (5:14)
3.) Lou Reed – Walk on the Wild Side (11:33)
The first tune from the Talking Heads will get you started with a recognizable riff you can play even if you just started. (thanks Tina Weymouth)
And I’ll show how to get your notes short and tight like Tina’s with some left hand muting, which is an important skill for bass playing in any style.
Next up is a classic single from Green Day, with beginner-friendly riffage supplied by Mike Dirnt.
If you don’t already know about how important “chugging” is for bass players, this is a good beginner bass riff for you. Once you start chugging, you’ll be doing it happily for years.
Then it’s time for some freaking epic bass slides on an old Lou Reed song (which you might know best as a Tribe Called Quest sample).
I’ll show you the secret to being able to do massive slides without getting lost. Because slides only sound good when you end up in the right place at the end. 😛
