The Styles and Techniques curriculum is comprised of select bass guitar lessons from the educators’ existing TrueFire course libraries.
As you become a better bass player, you’ll need to be able to cover a wide variety of styles. You’ll also need to hone your technique. The lessons in this core course will expand your knowledge and help you become a more versatile bassist.
Play Bass 5 is arranged into 3 sections. In the first section you’ll work through essential blues concepts and grooves. In section 2 You’ll spend time digging into the R&B feel, and learning about the backbeat that is critical to being in the pocket. Then in the final section there are some great lessons on Rock and Roll bass playing.
The educators demonstrate all of the key examples over jam tracks (where and when applicable) to simulate a real-world application, in a musical context. All of the key examples are also tabbed and notated for your practice, reference and study purposes.
You’ll also get Guitar Pro files so that you can play, loop or slow down the tab and notation as you work through the lessons. Plus, you’ll have all of the available jam tracks to work with on your own.
Take as much time as you need to work through each video lesson before moving on to the next lesson.
