Watch the 5th Intervals Part 2 online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from Stu Hamm U: Bass Basics

Now we get to have some fun and play some music! As your musical knowledge and vocabulary increases, so will the types of music you will be able to play. With just the Root and the Fifth let’s first play an easy Country groove in the key of C. Remember, there are no simple, boring bass lines, only simple-minded, easily bored Bass Players! There is an art and skill to playing a technically easy part convincingly - listen to how I make that drum machine groove baby! We’ll also jam on a Latin groove, and will be introduced to dotted notes on the Staff notation, the beginning of syncopation.
