How are your transcribing skills?
I have put a video together to show you how you can start to transcribe bass lines yourself.
If you have always wanted to transcribe but felt it is too difficult, then check out my lesson and start using the five steps I outline.
There is also a free PDF with five very short transcriptions which your can go away and try and do yourself, then check with mine.
You don’t need to read music to be able to start transcribing.

I don’t about you, but I think that Reggae has some of the grooviest bass lines there are.
The bass is almost always very prominent and right in the pocket.
