Watch the Sweet Blues online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Bass Guitar 5: Styles & Techniques

Sweet Blues - Performance is a video guitar lesson presented by Stu Hamm and is sourced from Essentials: Rock Bass Grooves.


Any list of "Greatest Rock Basslines" will include "Sweet Emotion" as played by Tom Hamilton of Aerosmith. Here's a bassline intended to capture the same vibe and introduce you to the technique of using open notes. While this figure can be played across the fretboard, I find it much more grooving when you use the open string to achieve that signature sound and vibe. Chris Squire of Yes uses this to great effect in the track "Sound Chaser" from Relayer, check it out!
