Zz Top’s ‘Precious and Grace’ - Bass Lesson


Recommended Posts

My favourite album by Southern Rock band, 'ZZ Top' has to be 'Tres Hombres'. This was released in 1973 and has the hit song, 'La Grange' on it.


Another cool song on the album is, 'Precious and Grace'. It uses chords 1, 4, and 5 for the most part, so it's relatively simple, but it rock!


Dusty Hill lays down his usual solid bass line in this tune and also uses an interesting quick sliding technique in the guitar solo that took me a couple of tries to replicate. 


In my latest YouTube video, I break down the bass line from Precious and Grace, and also chat a bit about how to get a similar bass tone to Dusty Hill. 


There’s a link under the video to a free transcription of the bass line in standard notation and Tab. Enjoy!
