Using Compound Intervals

Nicholas Mason proudly presents a lesson from:


FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites This is a technique for playing basic chords using compound intervals. Compound invervals are like standard intervals (eg, 3rd, 4th, 5th) but the notes in question are an octave (or sometimes more) further apart. They are great to use at the end of a passage or phrase, or to simple add a bit more flavour to an otherwise simple bass line.

Glad you like the video!

The background noise is probably someone watching the TV in the other room. Usually when i am recording my bass i use the line out from my amp (like in the first half). However, in the second half i was using the built in mic, so I guess it picked up what was going on in the background too.
