How To Jam On Bass! (Advanced Technique/Scales/Groove/Musicality)

Itching to know how to spontaneously create spectacular bass lines, fills, and solos?? I'll help you as best I can in this short bass lesson.

The elements covered are:

  • Scales (Dorian and Aeolian)
  • Grooves
  • Musicality
  • Rhythms
  • Fretboard Knowledge
  • Advanced Techniques - rolling, raking, hammer-ons, pull-offs, bends, slides, vibrato

Drum Beat Backing

There's no doubt that you need to have some skills under your fingers before you can truly begin to improvise freely.

Your technique needs to be solid, you need to know your way around the fretboard, be able to play in time, and know a few scales. I teach all these subjects on this site so check out the free courses, the related lessons below, and have a search for the area you need to improve in.
