  • Hello GMC!
    -Welcome to my new rock bass lesson.In this lesson we are going to play using a pick. We will mostly be concentrated on keeping a rock groove using 8th notes. This type of line can be heard in the 70s and 80s rock era on records from bands like AC/DC.

    -In this rock tune you will practice playing with a pick , alternating throughout the tune. You will also use some vibrato and slides too and practice combining different groove feels.

    -Scale used in this lesson was E minor and every note played here will match this scale.

    -Key: Em
    -Tempo: 140 bpm
    -Time signature: 4/4
    -Tuning : standard
    -Difficulty: beginner/intermediate

    Equipment I used for getting this sound was: Peavey Cirrus bass with active soapbar pickups, equal mix of both of them with added treble and middle on onboard eq - then going to the nemesis(eden) amp with a 1x15" and slightly added bass and treble there (at 1 o'clock position).

    Feel free to ask me any questions in the lesson feedback and in my instructor board at forum.

    Enjoy and I hope you'll have a lot of fun rockin' this one!
