Watch the Bass On The Offbeat online guitar lesson by Roberto Dalla Vecchia from Solo Flatpicking Handbook

Here we're still arranging the same melody as the last concept, this time twisting the rhythm of it in order to play both the melody and the bass note.

Instead of playing a big strum that includes the melody (the chord and the bass), we'll play the bass first and then strum the chord without the bass up to the melody note. By doing so, we're playing the bass on the offbeat.
