This week I’ve got a seemingly easy bass line for you. A basic comp pattern with a few ghost notes. BUT… breaking it down a little we can see some hidden technical hurdles.

First of all there are those pesky ghost notes to contend with and secondly, the feel of the line is a result of the space in the line, not the notes. So, we’re going to look at how practicing your note control can be key to creating momentum in your bass lines!
