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. 

I have made a video lesson to explore Reggae bass and to help you to start composing your own Reggae bass lines.

There are a few techniques which can help you to make your lines sound more authentic. 

I have left a couple of backing tracks running at the end of the video and you can also download a free pdf in the video description. 

I hope this helps anyone wanting to start playing Reggae bass.

Good stuff! I like the idea of phrasing things as a question-and-answer.

Glad you liked the lesson. I find that question and answer helps with structuring a bass line. You can use that idea for all styles but it works so well in Reggae.

      Hey Bass-chatters,
      If you could have any resource to help you to learn how to improve your Blues bass playing, what would it be? 
       
      For example, backing tracks, video instructional course, coaching, etc.
      Also what is your preference with styles of Blues?  American or British Blues?  Or do you just love it all like me?

      If you are getting string noise or string ring when you are playing your bass, you probably need to work on your string muting. 
      Find out three way to eliminate this string noise in my latest video lesson.
      This will give you a much cleaner bass tone. 
      There is also details of a FREE bass ebook in the video.

      New ‘Bass Line Breakdown’ video!
      This lesson shows you how to play the bass line from Shadows in the Rain’ by Sting. 
      The bass line features Darryl Jones and is an uptempo walking line. It is such fun to play a great one to learn. 
      There is a pdf download in the description and a backing track to jam to at the end of the video.
