Bass Rhythm Masterclass: EVERY 1/16th Note Combination

Mastering rhythms is essential if you want to become a good bass player.

Sixteenth note rhythms (semiquavers) are found in loads of styles, especially funk and rock bass playing. Some of the coolest bass grooves contain them.

In this lesson, I'll show you the different 1/16th note rhythmic permutations as well as some more common real-world rhythms (those ones use 1/8th notes as well).

Scroll down for the free PDF with all the rhythms plus some audio examples.
