Tapping for Bass Guitar Lesson Part 3 – Contrapuntal Style

2017-11-01T15:33:37+00:00November 14th, 2014|Categories: Bass Tapping|5 Comments

This lesson deals with contrapuntal tapping for bass guitar whereby we play independent lines in both hands. This often involves a bass ostinato in the fretting hand and a melody in the right hand.

The exercises provided aim to improve rhythmic independence between the hands by working on two lines one note at a time.

    Hi Mark, thanks a lot for your amazing lessons! Is there any tutorial or tabs for the Minuet in G by Bach? the part that you played in this video? I would really love to lean it. Thanks!
