In this bass lesson I highlight a common bad habit that most bass players suffer from at one time or another when trying to solo over chord changes. But, I show you an AWESOME SAUCE exercise so YOU don’t do the same!


Right now over 10,000 bass players are enrolled in the Academy here at Scott’s Bass Lessons and are making a real difference to their playing… if you’re really serious about getting your bass playing together, click here to find out more and grab your FREE trial:

Bully Thakidd says:

I learned playing by ear and i have been playing for a few years i believe I'm pretty good in most situations but my question is this… if i wanted to become more technically sound where would be a good place to start.

Biggest bad habit among bass players (and guitar players to) is the dependency on tabs, seriously.

 sorry but thats nonsense.anyone who knows the basic harmony knows that here he have to deal with 3 chords(2-5-1) related to one scale(c major-ionian).so whats the point?why do i have to think
roots and the fifth of the roots again and again?i just play c major over the three chords and start from any note i want and i am done!so easy..just my opinion friendly.

kenneth smith says:

Vincent Rpl says:

Useful, yes we're programmed to play the root note every time, even, when I solo a little bit on the guitar, I do the same !
