Watch the Loop the Loop online guitar lesson by TrueFire from 50 Licks Greatest Hits Vol. 1
In this lick I am demonstrating how I create really useful bass lines/groove beds using a looping sampler pedal like my Loopstation. Note how we start with simple, precise, short lines of bass and add layer after layer one at a time to create a strong groove which can be used to solo over or play other instruments in a live setting.
Using techniques and tools like this, the bass can be used to create a very interesting palette of symphonic movement. Try experimenting with different gear and see what kind of sounds you can create outside of the norm. After all, this is the Bass Revolution!
