Watch the Hear the Tunes online guitar lesson by Andrew Ford from 30 Rock Bass Grooves for Beginners You MUST Know
This one is in the style of "Listen to the Music" by the Doobie Brothers. It's written with 4 bars, but almost feels like 2 because the bars are counted so quickly. It has a galloping feel using our old friend the dotted quarter/eighth rhythm.
The first bar just moves back and forth between the C# root for beats 1 and 2 and the 5 (G#) for beats 3 and 4. Bar 2 is similar, but ends with two quarters using the 5 (G#) and back to the root, C#. Next, we have two bars of A with a steady climb. Two beats using our dotted rhythm, two beats of the note B, and continuing to move up we have C#, the 3rd in Bar 4. It continues moving up to D, then we move only a half step to D# and finally to E on beat 4.
