Tal Wilkenfeld – Serendipity Intro Lesson

Vince Di Francesco

Playbassnow.com proudly presents a lesson from:


FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites I'm just playing through this intro for you. I start by playing it up to speed, then slowly, then just the chord shapes (in sequence, this the first step, i just wanted you to hear it first), then at a medium tempo, then up to speed. Coordinate those left hand fingers into getting the chord shapes before adding the melodies in between the changes. For the right hand, I'm switching between a traditional two finger picking technique and a more guitar player like finger picking, utilizing the thumb,  index and middle fingers. I'm not sure if Tal uses that fingerpicking, but it came instinctually to me. \This is a great sounding bass part; gorgeous line. Take your time with it, take it real slow. Its fun to play when you've got it up to speed.  Hope you find this helpful. If you need any clarification, just leave a comment! Simlarily, I looked at some of Tal's fingerings for this intro from her performance on Australian TV, which is floating around YouTube for sure. After figuring out the other chords using a Tascam, I watched the video again and verified that these are the shapes she uses.

Well, that took a little bit to figure out.
