Watch the Tennessee Stew online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Bass Guitar 7: Advanced Styles & Techniques

Tennessee Stew - Groove 18 is a video guitar lesson presented by Andrew Ford and is sourced from 50 R&B Bass Grooves You MUST Know.


This groove is based on the bassline in Memphis Soul Stew by artist King Curtis. A lot of movement in this one chord 4 bar modal motif features the root octave flat seven movement before ending the motif with some syncopated walking from the major 3rd using chromatic notes and notes in the E mixolydian scale. It has some challenging syncopations to play at this tempo while the fingering is spread out crossing over all 4 strings.
