Watch the Dripping with Soul online guitar lesson by David Santos from 50 Bass Grooves You MUST Know
Dripping with soul is a funky mid-tempo groove where the bass plays primarily the root and fifth of each chord with only a few embellishments. The embellishments are touch oriented and subtle, slightly percussive, and unobtrusive, mostly pick ups to each chord. They serve to add rhythm and the simplest of connective melodies between the root and fifth which exist on one and three as the core groove. Get in the pocket and dance.
