Watch the Straight Eighths Rock online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from Stu Hamm U: Bass Basics

Alrighty then…now that we know the basic blues chord progression and how to read and follow a basic chord chart let's talk about different grooves, or styles of music. It’s one of the wonderful things about music that the same thing can be played and interpreted in so many different ways, and convey totally different feelings.

So let’s start out playing example #2 with a “straight 8ths” groove. “Straight 8ths “ means that we will be playing a steady stream of 8th notes with no syncopation. We’ll start just pumping out the root and then use the pentatonic scale to construct a bass line that will certainly sound familiar. Let your fingers do the walkin’!
