  • Hello GMC!

    -In today's lesson we are going to play a Reggae style bass line. You will learn how to improvise a bass line in this style by using only arpeggios as your tone choice. Reggae style is very rhythmic, you will encounter many different note values mixed together in this lesson.

    -Backing track is a groovy Reggae style one.You are going to practice your sense of rhythm in this lesson and learn how to apply arpeggios knowledge to improvise a line to a chord progression.

    -This lesson is in the key of A major. All notes will belong to A major scale.

    -Key: A major

    -Tempo: 80 bpm

    -Time signature: 4/4

    -Tuning: standard

    -Difficulty: beginner/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 grooving in this one!
