The Ultimate Bass Groove Timing Workout

The whole point of this lesson is NOT the groove below but rather how you approach practising it.

  1. Take the line (or any other you want to)
  2. Record yourself along to a drum loop or metronome (I use Stylus RMX or Logic Pro's included drum beats)
  3. Listen back
  4. Feedback: find out where you're rushing or where your timing is sloppy
  5. Focus on and fix the error
  6. Rinse and repeat!

Over time your groove will deepen.

Keep at it and remember to count and subdivide those beats!

Here's the groove from the lesson but, remember, you can use any bass line.
