Re: Bass riffs

Learn scales.   Learn where the I and the V are for whatever key you're playing in.   If you can do that, you can play bass.

Someday we'll win this thing...

Re: Bass riffs

If you play by ear, it's a matter of fair and foul. The arppegios of the chord you're in are usually all fair notes.
Play along with recordings and note what tones the bass player on the record selects.
Bass is sooo fun. You get to play a solo along with the main melody.

We pronounce it "Guf Coast".
Ya'll wanna go down to the Guf?

Thats the kind of thing i wanted to know.
Knowing zero about bass, thought i might dip my toe in the water see if was for me.

Re: Bass riffs

I am a beginner upright bass player, and I'd like to get bass clef sheet music.   Is it available from chordae?  Is there a bass fiddle tab?
Thanks!!
