BASS LINES: “The Magic of the Accent”
Hello bass players and fans of bass playing!
2018 will be the year of #fullbassattack lessons!
This month, we will start with the accent, a very important technique that contributes a lot to the articulation in your bass playing.
Accent – a note that it is played with a special emphasis which serves to give rhythm to the music.
Fig. 1 – An example with the symbol of the accented note.
Fig. 2 – A rock bassline using the accents.
Fig. 3 – A funky groove with punchy accents.
Fig. 4 – A modal riff based on D Dorian with heavy accents.
See you next month for more #fullbassattack lessons in the next issue of BMM and keep in touch with #bassmusicianmag, #basslines, #jdv, #groovingtheworld and #groovingthenation.
Thank you for all your support and feel free to comment. Keep GROOVING!
