From Novice to Pro: Step-by-Step Bass Line Creation

Join me as I take you through a chord progression and teach you how to play simple but groovy bass lines.

Then I'll explain how to build them up and embellish them whilst adding your own touches and bass fills.

There's a free backing track for this one which I highly recommend you download so that you can practise all the ideas in context.

Scroll down for that plus the chord chart PDF.


Free Backing Track & Chord Chart

Download the backing track and chord chart and get creating! Remember that simple and in time sounds really good.

You can build your ideas the more you learn.

  • Very nice Dan, especially when you put the backing track along with the PDF chord chart along with the notes as your playing to the backing track. That helps me so much Dan with out that I am pretty much lost! Thank you Dan!
