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 Drum Backing Track 115BPM
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):
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.
