In this lesson I’ll be showing you the PERFECT bass riff to get you started playing bass as a complete beginner. This bass riff is great for working on loads of the basics such as crossing strings, finger strength (especially in that pinky) and just general riff playing.

Even if you’re not a complete beginner to bass guitar playing, you’ll be able to get something from the lesson as I breakdown certain aspects of technique in the second half of the lesson.

The Perfect Beginner Bass Riff

Playing Tips:

  • Use fretting hand index and pinky (fingers 1 and 4)
  • Use alternate picking in the order: middle – index – middle – index
