Bass groove demonstration – how to jam

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Before a rehearsal with our fusion band (trio bravo + 1) we just started to jam
Drums started, i fell in with a simple bassline D minor ( sometimes Major) to C Major and it later evolves to a D minor 251
Notice how the bass line changes with the drums

Im playing my old 1971 Fender Jazz bass strung with Dunlop nickel strings gauge 45-105, over a old Hartke amp with a 4×10 Peavey cabinet

I like your lessons on slap, funk, groove and others. I have add and dyslexia, so it is hard for me to follow along on vides. I must be able to see tabs to understand what you are doing. If you would talk each note as you play your slow explanation it would help also. Thanks I am having a ball with your other lessons. I like the open string slap L365 can you put it in tab for me.
