Alrighty thennow that we know the basic blues chord progression and how to read and follow a basic chord chart let’s talk about different grooves, or styles of music. Its one of the wonderful things about music that the same thing can be played and interpreted in so many different ways, and convey totally different feelings.

So lets start out playing example #2 with a straight 8ths groove. Straight 8ths means that we will be playing a steady stream of 8th notes with no syncopation. Well start just pumping out the root and then use the pentatonic scale to construct a bass line that will certainly sound familiar. Let your fingers do the walkin!

  1. I see that, I just think this should not be labeled as a lesson for "beginners", more like a lesson for novices or some more advanced level. Have a nice day 🙂

  2. This is just a sample. He has a full 40 video tutorial set available for $20. See links in the description.

  3. pretty catchy

  4. have your fun,but this dude is a fuckin god! look him up…STU HAMM BOSS!

  5. I agree.
    I was scrounging around the youtubes for a kind of start point for when I start teaching and I thought this would be good.
    He hasn't explained anything about walking or scales 😛

    Shoot me a pm on youtube or something and I could see if I could help you with that

  9. have you got chords?

  10. To learn there songs sorry

  11. This was VERY helpful thank you so much!! You should look into a band called skillet there a really good christian rock band they are SICK!! You should make a video to Lear there songs

  12. How do you play Dave Ellison for Megadeth wake up dead please help thanks

  13. Learn major scales. once you learn them, the pattern applies anywhere on the fretboard. Just google major scales for bass guitar and you will probably get tons of results back showing you how to play them. Then learn a pentatonic scale and hey presto. Bass lines like this are a walk in the park

  14. He uses a combination of C (3rd fret on the A string) F (1st fret on the E string) and G (3rd Fret on the E string) and 'chugs' away on these in Eighths. He then uses the pentatonic of the major scales of these notes (learn major scales, the pattern is simple) and plays these an octave higher before going back to the 'chug'. Hope this helps

  15. he expects you to already have watched a previous video about scales, so he's just playing in the scale.

  16. Check Out My Channel for Instructional Bass Course…

  17. would help if he told you what frets he's going to be hitting…

  18. He should play without a shirt on like Flea.

  19. Wait, sorry but I don't get the motion. Do you put your fingers on the string your plucking or do you not? Stupid question I know, but I can't see the motion he's doing.
