Watch the Bass Fill online guitar lesson by Frank Vignola from 30 Jazz Guitar Rhythms You MUST Know
"Bass Fill" focuses on a rhythm guitar style when there is no bass player. We started by playing the root and 5th of each chord in the bass, as a bassist would play in this style. In this track, we now lead into the bass notes using neighboring tones. Both upper and lower neighboring tones are used in the demonstration. We use a basic blues progression in the key of C to demonstrate this must know rhythm guitar technique.
