Really cool lesson Daric. Jaco said that learning melodies is a must for bass players, and what your lesson shows is that by understanding what chords can fit over the melody, you really get a fuller picture of the song.What I’m really intrigued by is some bass covers I’ve seen. People playing crazy jazzy chords over popular tunes. I’d love to know and understand how to approach that.
thanks Julien, I get exactly what you mean. We’ll dig deep in reharmonization and also chord substitution. It can be a bit difficult to understand at first but I’ll show you a way to be comfortable real quick
That’s great, really looking forward to it!
That was fun able to play it some, ty.10th chords have a nice sound.
Right! In almost any situation. They sound great even just as the 2 intervals, the root and the 10th/ major or minor 😎
love this video so much… I’ve always wanted to know what you use your in-ears for?
Thanks so much! Glad you enjoyed it!
I use in ear monitors to monitor my bass and microphone
