Hey everyone

Here’s a quick lesson on how to play the bass line to Use Somebody by Kings of Leon.  This is a great turn for beginners because the majority of the bass line is in a steady 8th note rhythm with mainly the root note as the note being used for each chord.

Here it is:

There is much going on rhythmically in that 2nd verse than what you are teaching here. Its not all eights at all.

You’ve missed the slide at the end of the intro, from F (I play it from the 8th fret of A), which also appears at the end of the song

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
