Sometimes I plan lessons down to the nth degree and sometimes I push record and teach on the fly! This lesson is one of the latter and in it, you will learn:
- The Dorian mode and how to make fills using it
- Constructing a bass line
- Practice tips
- Slap and expressive techniques
The drum beat and PDF for the lesson are below the video so scroll down for those.

Funk Bass Line TAB/Notation
There's quite a bit of advanced technique in this lesson. I have a book that goes through the basics and builds up to the good stuff (there's no slap or plectrum though):
Complete Fingerstyle Bass Technique
There are more free technique lessons here and more lessons on how to create bass lines here.
Keep up the practice and let me know how you're getting on!
P.S. If you want to know where to start with learning bass (if you're a beginner), you might want to check this page out.
