Bassline with harmonics on fretless bass

Guido Ponzini proudly presents a lesson from:


FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites This is a little insight view of my piece "Raindrop", that you can watch here: 1. The complete exercise: execution of the entire exercise inspired by "Raindrop" 2. The first part: this is based on A(E) and G(D), played with artificial harmonics. 3. The second part: it is a melody based on the same two bichord of the first part, adding a F-E passage on the first (A-E) and a chromatic passage between E and D on the second one (G-D). 4. The third part: playing with left hand a root in G, I put some rhythmical ghost notes with the right hand (same thing of the first lesson that you can find on my profile: ). Then I use harmonics between the fifth and seventh frets on G and D strings, sliding them 5. The fourth part: it's a very simple melody based on the same bichords built on fifth: A(E), G(D), F(C), D(A) - A(E), G(D), D(A) ::|| 6. Harmonics: a brief summary about harmonics: artificial harmonics, natural harmonics and how to slide them. Hope you will enjoy this little insight view/lesson. Please, rate, comment, post suggestions 🙂 Thank you for your support, more pieces and lessons coming soon Guido
