  1. Learn the bass line and jam to Dancing In The Moonlight by Thin Lizzy. Interactive video lesson with free PDF and backing tracks with live musicians. Learn different ideas to play under the guitar solo and rock your way through isolation! https://youtu.be/qXCEgGsDnDI
  2. I’ve been experimenting with bass overdrive for a while now and I thought I’d share my demo of the Boss ODB-3 Bass Overdrive Pedal. This Boss pedal is one of the popular choices out there for bass distortion. In my video demo I explain the controls and play through the pedal with different settings. I also have a collection of gear reviews and bass lessons in my Youtube Gear Reviews Playlist that you might also want to check out. Hope it’s useful. https://youtu.be/kJ9uvBpaFAA
  3. Thanks @Soledad appreciate the feedback.
  4. How good is your understanding of rhythm? If you want help, read on...... This is the first video lesson in my YouTube Rhythm Series where I tackle note/rest lengths and time signatures. I also give you five rhythmic patterns to work on and drum loops to practice these with. A free PDF worksheet is available in the video description on YouTube. Any questions, then please ask, and please leave a comment if there is anything in particular with rhythm that you would like to see in future videos. https://youtu.be/HVlvc6LH3UA
  5. In this lesson I show you how to develop an accurate alternate picking technique on the bass. This technique is vital if you want to play properly with a plectrum. The five exercises will help you to target this area of your playing and give you the ability to pick faster bass lines. There is a free PDF with the video lesson. Enjoy! https://youtu.be/rGCz7FEuhww
  6. Some of you may have heard of Duck Dunn from the Blues Brothers Movie. He also played on 1000’s of classic hits for Stax Records with artists such as Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding, Albert King, Sam & Dave, Eric Clapton, and many more. Learn Five Classic Duck Dunn Bass Lines in this video lesson, and pick up the free PDF in the video description on YouTube. https://youtu.be/kzJ6TpeJOjA
  7. Along with the major scale which I covered a few weeks ago, the minor scale is just as important to know if you want to understand the basics of music theory. Knowledge of these scales will help you understand harmony, construct intervals, learn chord tones and venture into modes. This week I look at the natural minor scale. You can download the free PDF in the video description on YouTube. https://youtu.be/VtGknyYLzlU
  8. I agree, so much to learn from Motown bass lines. The art of being busy but playing what’s appropriate.
  9. Thanks for sharing. It’s similar for me too, in that I don’t really like the strings. I should really get round to trying some different sets on it. Great instrument though.
  10. Cheers @thebigyin Motown is so great for bass isn’t it!
  11. Cheers, glad you enjoyed the video.
  12. https://youtu.be/eX15AApxNyUT The video lesson this week is all about that classic Queen riff - Another One Bites The Dust. I teach the main riff and the verse and there is also a free PDF to download. This is an accessible bass line for beginners and also a good one to practice nailing that groove. Enjoy!
  13. Learn this classic Bernard Edwards bass line from Chic’s Good Times. One if the best riffs ever, in my opinion. Video lesson and free PDF in the video description on YouTube. Enjoy! https://youtu.be/sobDKX-1zJk
  14. If you are looking for a way to practice and get more familiar with Chord Tones then this exercise is perfect for you. It’s short but very effective. Video lesson and PDF with notation or Tab. https://youtu.be/OQaTjjUElBE
