Watch the Stiff Upper Lip: 3 online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Guitar Cubed
While listening to this straight ahead rock eight bar sequence let’s first check out the bass line. Here you have a consistent barrage of low E 1/8 notes coming at you leaving plenty of room for Guitars 1 & 2 to do their thing based off one chord. That aside, the real focus is put upon an extremely important element in any rhythm section--the kick drum. While that usually is the bass player’s rhythmic guide, as we’ve just discovered, the bass is leaving that element wide open for Guitars 1 and/or 2 to have their taste. This is another example of you-never-know-where when it comes to just where you get ideas from.
