Watch the Deep Groove online guitar lesson by David Santos from 50 Bass Grooves You MUST Know

This is a four measure phrase. The drummer is playing a 16th note feel on his high hat. The downbeat of measure one is a short 8th note followed by a long 8th note followed by the remainder of the line which constitutes a one measure phrase. This one measure phrase is repeated three times to make 3 measures. In measure 4 the line is altered to make this a 4 measure phrase. Play this deep groove in a fluid yet steady way. Lay it down with a legato feel after the first staccato note of each measure. Concentrate on the duration of the notes. No fills are necessary for this groove. Less is more!
