  • Hello GMC!

    - In today's lesson you are going to learn the song "Midnight Special". It's the traditional folk song that originated among prisoners in the American South.

    - There are many covers of this song, possibly the most famous one is by "Creedence Clearwater Revival". I have made an original bass arangement of the song for 2 bass guitar. One playing walking bass style of rhythm track and other playing the famous mellody of the song on top!

    - VIDEOS 2-13 will be about the "rhythm" part of this song.
    - VIDEOS 14-25 will show you how to play the solo part.
    So if you want just the solo or rhythm part to learn you can skip the other one. But I recommend you learning both parts..

    -Key: F major

    -Tempo: 155 bpm

    -Time signature: 4/4

    -Tuning: standard

    -Difficulty: intermediate

    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!
