EBS Lesson One  Building a rock groove (using quarter notes)

Developing your bass playing by changing notes

Now that you know where the notes of A and G are, we need to start to develop your ability to change between them. Music is often made up of many different notes and we need to be fluent at changing between them.

Below are three more exercises that require you to change between the notes of A and G at different times. These will help you practise your changes.

Underneath each note we have noted the beat the notes are on, so that you can count and change to the next note on the right part of the bar. We have also provided play-along media files, so that you can set your BassXtractor to play the music at a comfortable pace and cycle around and around to give you lots of practise.

Remember that there are video files for each exercise if you are at all unsure as to what you are doing.
