EPIC Bass Fills Workshop!

In this bass guitar tutorial I'm going to take you through four famous songs and teach you how to make up your own fills and embellishments over them.

This is great training for when you're playing in a covers band and need to step out and your own touch. 

Scroll down to hear the originals plus to download the free PDF with all the scale and arpeggio shapes as well as the chord progressions and keys of the song.

To dive deeper into the theory behind making up your own bass fills, check out my course Music Theory For Bass Players.
