  1. did you rip this off from Anthony Wellington? Cuz he uses that same exact diagram.

  2. Where can you just hear Scott playing—-just solo for more than 1 minute–no lesson –just playing?

  3. thnx a lot Scott! Im a guitar player (or i try to be one), and this help me a lot!

  4. Scotty is the first mofo bassist to put the 4th diad into the BJ line.- which is exactly like the original

  5. Best Trick is to learn to play drums with a metronome. Groove for bass and all other instruments fall into place like magic. I swear it is worth it especially when you start multi tracking yourself.

  6. Thanks Scott. Loved this lesson, your inspirational approach and the way you do the information in chunks.
    One question, feel a bit cabbage but can't find the videos 2 and 3 of this series you were talking about.

  7. Fantastic lesson!!!

  8. Ronnie Chun-Akana

  12. Thank you for the informative videos. I love 'em.

  13. clappin on all the ah's

  14. This is a selfish way of explaining how bassists should groove.only so many ways to explain the invention of the wheel, so to speak. while this could be enlightening for some beginner bassists, it's wayy way to verbose. This could be explained better in 1/4 the time. and because it's so verbose, you have left out the most important lesson of 'the groove grid' as you call it. That is the fact that you use your ears to create the groove based on notes and nuances of the drums. This approach will work in a generic way, but you must learn to listen and lock in to make a real groove, as if you're sharing a brain with the drummer. not hating on your work- just a little constructive criticism. your approach may work if you're a songwriter composing every instruments harmony, rhythm and melody. In that case you could start with anything. But traditionally – and in live jam settings – drums should be the foundation of the groove. next, bass locks in with some harmony, and so on.

    of course there's no 'right way' set in stone. but from a teaching standpoint, this is a good way to get started.

  15. Bobby Strickland

    Thanks for being thorough and giving us all the steps! I appreciate seeing music and bass playing in a new light!

  16. This lesson made so much more click!!!

  17. This might be the most important bass lesson you'll watch

  18. This is really great!

    However, before switching to playback speed x2, i highly recommend trying speed x 0.5..
