How To Play Don’t Give Up, TONY LEVIN (Breakdown & Lesson)

Don't Give Up is one of a host of incredible bass lines played by Tony Levin on Peter Gabriel's work of art; So. I recommend giving the entire album a listen and then digging into Levin's discography. Tone, taste, timing: the man has the lot!

This lesson shows you how to play the iconic verse bass line as well as the cool outro section. Along the way, I'll teach you the key and why that's important as well as double stops and how to use them in your own bass lines.

Here's the master playing it (from another amazing album: Secret World Live).
