Groove Elements & Ideas | Filling up the bass line
What’s up #BASSNATION?! In this week’s lesson I’ll be digging in with you live on different ideas to help you develop a groove. Like with any lesson, knowing your vocabulary, modes, scales, and notes will really help you advance as you work out bass lines. It’s important to be able to figure out the root key you are playing and then figure out relative scales from there. Dive in with me as I talk through this process with you!

Hey bro, how do you get this kind of creativity into songs that are always changing chords…the 4 chord pop or CCM music?
Hey Tim great question! I can cover that in our live class or in the next lesson! Let’s make it personal, give me an example song that we can use as a reference.
I think this song is a perfect example because he’s already arranged it so creatively. It has a lot of potential and the band is using some really cool chords but the base is also that perfect example of a simple CCM baseline with mostly root notes.
I have the perfect song! Will reply with that. Also though, here’s some Gm practice after watching this lesson: https://youtu.be/HJjf12g5LjY
Thank you brother! So much good stuff here. I’m going to digest then play with it and post a follow up!
daric i am having a hard time with coming up with licks when using the realtive major in a minor key without it sounding like a scale could you make a video lesson explaning this? it would help so much I struggle with this and this would help so much!
Hey Desy, sure thing! We have gone over and broken down this concept several times so I’ll link one those lessons below, so take a look at that in the meantime until I’m able to create another. Look out for it soon!
