Watch the Octaves Part 2 online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from Stu Hamm U: Bass Basics

Now let’s put it all together and make some music! We have a basic understanding of what the names of the notes are, how to read TAB and play Octave - so we can put it all together. We’ll jam on a simple disco groove in A Minor, occasionally going to D Minor and using some Chromatic-Octave walk-ups and a few sixteenth note embellishments to funkify out groove. The role of the Bass in a band is to provide foundation and connect the rhythm and harmony, and even with the most basic knowledge and capabilities you can have fun jamming along with this track or with your friends.
