Watch the 50 R&B Bass Grooves online guitar lesson by Andrew Ford from 50 R&B Bass Grooves You MUST Know
I really enjoyed creating this course. R&B music and its related styles, funk and soul are my roots. The basslines can be so diverse, one swings, the other is slow and romantic, another is super funky, then others might be melodic, syncopated, smooth, rock influenced, latin influenced, reggae and on and on. Although I love to play many styles of music, R&B style basslines are just the most fun for me to play. It would not be uncommon to hold down the bottom with a riff that is the focus of the song, disappear into the groove with the drums providing an invisible foundation, step out front with some killer slapping, or play whole notes on a ballad in the same set. I hope you have discovered like I have what fun and diversity there is in playing R&B, soul, and funk style bass and hope it has broadened your love for music and bass.
