Watch the 5-4-1 Rock Groove online guitar lesson by Andrew Ford from Bass Groove Survival Guide

This is a straight 8th note rock groove. A common mistake is to believe that this style is easy because of its repetitive nature. To capture the feel you still need to familiarize yourself with the great recordings and bass players in this genre if you want to really nail the groove. You can play these either with a pick or finger style.
