What Can Soul/RnB/Motown Bass Playing Teach You?

Whilst writing my book RnB, Soul & Motown Style Basslines, I noticed three areas that really help in ALL bass playing situations. I'll show you them in this lesson.

The three areas are:

  1. How to get a great bass tone that sits in a band setting brilliantly
  2. Playing with feel, groove, and making people nod their heads!
  3. Simple patterns that you can use over and over again in multiple different genres.

I recommend this lesson if you want to go over those patterns in a little more detail:
