Try to keep it really simple. You can play straight quarter notes or 8th notes (roots) if you want. Just concentrate on learning to approach of using roots with proper rhythm against a backing track.

Its not that bad at all! You just got confused with chord changes. Try to listen more closely when changes are occurring.
In your playing you got lost on Bm7 chord.

A / D / E / C#m F#m / Bm7 / A

Its in 4/4 meaning 1 2 3 4 beats per measure. Take note that C#m F#m chords are taking on one bar (splitting it in half for each chord)

A chord - 4 beats
D chord - 4 beats
E chord - 4 beats
C#m chord - 2 beats!!!
F#m chord - 2 beats!!!
Bm7 chord - 4 beats
A chord - 4 beats
A chord - ending chord

You don't need to play staccato. Keep longer notes and just attack them on bass drum kicks. You don't need those pauses between notes - just keep em ringing.

Let me know if this helps! smile.gif

Yeah that sounds fine. If you get it tomorrow I'll post you second assignment. You don't want to fall behind with these weekly tasks in order to complete everything. Have fun on the rehearsal. I'm traveling to a gig now so I'll be back tomorrow for comments etc.

Cheers

Ok I can consider the previous assignments recording you sent as your submission.

Here is the new assignment:

Weekly assignment 2:

Using Root Notes and 5ths In Improvisation

Lesson to practice:

Root and 5ths lesson : http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Bass_F..._Start_Jamming/
Practice video parts 3 and 6 of the lesson.

Goal : To learn what are root notes and 5ths and how they relate to chords.

Purpose : Learn how you can use root notes and 5ths effectively when improvising your bass line.

Instructions :

I want you to read all the text material of the lesson and to jam along its demo tune. All the time think about which chord is playing in the backing track when doing this. You want to get comfortable on following written chord progression and finding appropriate root notes and 5ths on the bass neck instantly.

Requirements :

Post updates on your practice daily if possible, describing what have you done.
As the weekly assignment, I want you to record improvisation agaist the same backing track and progression you had for the previous assignment. I want you to record in audio (or video if you want) your playing over the backing track by using ONLY ROOT and 5th notes. Play those roots and 5ths notes in any rhythm you want.

Deadline to complete: 14th of June

Good luck and remember to post your questions and progress!

HERE IS THE REC TAKE FOR JUNE I WANT YOU TO RECORD:
