That's awesome, Bogdan! Interesting finger/thumb technique to emulate the stand up bass. Great continuation of your previous Ska lesson. Cool walking line. I like these longer lessons. Thanks!
I love this bass playing style! Good work Bogdan :-)
Cool lesson Bogdan - It reminds me of "The Skatalites" !
Great stuff Bogdna! Very reminiscent of that late 60's Ska vibe!!! I've added it to my Ska Wiki article too!!
Nice lesson Bogdan!
I can't wait to start on these lessons when I pick up a bass at last!
Great ! Reminds me of the period when Ska arrived here
Very useful bass lines Bogdan
Great chops Bogdan.
Great lesson Bogdan!

- Today we have a Ska bass lesson on our hands! We are going to deal with the roots of Ska style with a old school approach to the bass line composing. You are going to learn how to construct a walking bass line in this genre!
- This lesson features walking bass line construction and a new technique to master - muting and picking. You will learn how to emulate the sound and feel of the upright bass!
- First part of the lesson is in the key of C major and in the second part we have a modulation going to D major.
-Key: C and D major
-Tempo: 120 bpm
-Time signature: 4/4
Equipment I used for getting this sound was: Am Fender Jazz Bass deluxe, equal mix of both pickups with added bass and middle on onboard preamp - then going to the nemesis (eden) amp with a 1x15" and flat eq there.
Feel free to ask me any questions in the lesson's feedback and in my instructor board at the forum.
Enjoy and I hope you'll have a lot of fun practising this lesson!
