Hello GMC !
-In today's lesson we are going to play some rock in style of Muse band and their bassist - Christopher Tony Wolstenholme.
-In this lesson you will learn how to construct a groove by using open strings of bass to hold the tension in the bass line.You will also learn how this type of bass line sounds especially effective if you use distortion on bass.Also you will practice your right hand alternating..
-I used A minor scale exclusively for this one..You will learn how you can play around with its notes to construct different licks.
-Tempo: 120 bpm
-Time signature: 4/4
-Effects: bass distortion pedal (not required)
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 going through a distortion pedal for bass - 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!
