Just watched @JoshFossgreen’s excellent new video - 10 songs that taught me bass.
Oooh ‘Ray Charles - Hit the Road’ sounds perfect for me. I’m doing my second lap of the B2B course and have just learnt my first song ‘I’m so lonesome I could cry’ to the point where I can play along to the record/CD/wax gramophone etc
But goddammit Josh. I started learning it late last night and played for a few hours. Then bedtime and as I lay there trying to sleep all I could hear was ‘boom, boom, boom, boom’ etc the fabulous simple but catchy bass line was looping in my head. I guess I’m a bass player now and I’m very OK with that.
Found this play along video with tab great to work on the timing of the thing.
Side note - Totally worth doing a second lap of the course.
