L291 Bouncy disco bass line

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites Please enable Javascript and Flash to view this Blip.tv video.

This kind of bouncy bassline can be quite tricky with the pattern of an 8th note (root) followed by two 16ths (octave)

You can hear that kind of  ” umdidi, umdidi, umdidi “  on the Rod Stewart classic “Do you think im sexy”, bassline played by Phil Chen

RH450 settings are the same as on L290, but ive added some chorus to the track  in Garageband

Quicktime mov

iPod mv4

Flash flv

Want the transcription + TAB for this bass lick?

No, its a real amp for live and studio use, its got a great compression and tube preamp though.
The pandora is a headphone practice amp with fx, amp sims, reverbs etc. but no for pro use, great for videos a and demos though

Hi, you mention your settings on RH450. Will RH450 allow you to set just bass, mid and trebble or are there real presets with reverb and stuff like on the Pandora ?

Wishing you a pleasant holiday in Spain, it’s bleeding cold here in Nantes, France.

He Marlowe,
Great lick, imagine playing that for 15 minutes solid ;-) Can’t invite you, Italy is where I am. I don’t feel bad because it is rain, rain and yes….rain!

pudsy440: has any other member here noticed that playbassnow loads faster than it used to?? I'm finding it much faster lately, I haven't changed anything computer wise. Just curious. :)

MarloweDK: Well, i use different fx depending on the gig,and sometimes nothing at all. You can get far with just a octaver and autowah. Maybe add a fuzz/distortion of some kind

niftywiz: Sir..plz advice me a Effects processor for Live performance.

Mr Tibbs: WAZZUP Marlowe DK, Awesome Job with Larry Graham and the others...Keep Doin Your Thing Brutha!!!:-)

brainlock1: Hey Marlowedk, I don't know how I missed the Larry Graham meeting that you had back earlier in the year, (both the interview and actually playing his bass onstage) but I just wanted to say congratulations! I could see how much respect he has for you and what an honor it was to see that come to fruition! Thanks for all you do... Cheers. Bryan in Kentucky

MarloweDK: Finn: Its hard to find good Band in a box patterns, i usually just use the "Funk 70s style". Ill think about tutorials. In the mean time guest teacher Paul Wolfe has done some

soporific: Thnx @jazzperdk. That's an amazing video and Mr DK is the main basscat:-)

Finn: Hey Thomas, I just downloaded Band in a Box, and I'm having a little trouble making a good backing track, could you possibly do a tutorial, or maybe link me one that you found helpful? I also had some questions regarding tetrachords, is there a way I could message you about them? Thanks, Finn
