Hello bass players and fans of bass playing!
Here I have the bassline that I recently recorded for Hammer Tone Records. The song is called “The iGroove.” This is a very good example of a syncopated solid groove.
The bassline is very syncopated and locked with the drums. So, let’s GROOVE!
Song: “The iGroove”
Bass: Jaime David Vazquez – JDV
@2016 Hammer Tone Records
Fig. 1 – Section A:
This is a 6×4 syncopated groove. Notice the use of staccato, pull-off, rests, etc. For the bass fills, I’m using the E Blues Scale.
Fig. 2 – Section B:
In this bassline, I’m using the octaves with staccato and rests to create a very tight groove. Check out the E Minor Pentatonic bass fill at the second measure.
Stay tuned for more Bass Lines in the next issue and keep in touch with #fullbassattack and #bassmusicianmag. Thank you for all your support and feel free to comment.
