Watch the Slow Slide online guitar lesson by David Santos from 50 Bass Grooves You MUST Know

This tune is in 12-8. It is a repeating phrase of two chords per bar. The idea is to mark the downbeats with the tonic of each chord as the role of the bass player in the band, and fill the spaces between the chords with simple passing notes. Just play little simple phrases that connect the chords in a bass player rhythm section oriented way. Always remain the bass player and make little bass player statements between the chords that are subtle and that serve the feeling of the song.
