Watch the Jammin' with Arrpeggios online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from Stu Hamm U: Bass Basics

OK! Time to put out new-found knowledge to work for us in a fun and practical way by playing some music! We’ll play some simple and fun Reggae grooves that you can easily expand upon to jam with your friends. We start out with a very recognizable bass line that just uses Major Arpeggios to outline a I-IV-V progression in the key of G. Notice how when your hand is anchored in the correct position (Middle finger on the Root) your fingers will fall right into place to play the Arpeggio and create the bass line. We then switch to D and A Minor, change our hand position and play the Arpeggios backwards to create another standard reggae bass line.
