In this lesson, you’ll learn 5 beginner bass lines that people will recognize and love – and get people to pay attention to YOUR playing.

You see, bass is usually a ‘supporting’ instrument that goes unnoticed. There are tons of easy guitar riffs or piano riffs that people know and recognize, but if you played the bass lines to any of those songs, people would just look at you and say,

“What the hell was that supposed to be?”

The bass lines (even the easy bass lines) aren’t very recognizable. However, there are a few gems – a few songs where the bass line IS the song.

These are the kind of songs where people will immediately recognize the bass line and start singing along. And the best part – these are BEGINNER bass lines. They’re a great place to start.

So next time someone asks you to ‘play something’ (God – I hate it when people say this…) you’ll have something in your arsenal that is guaranteed to impress.
