First bass line you ever learned?


#1

For me, Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit.

(Can’t believe that song’s 27 years old now!)


#2

Nirvana’s Breed.
Same album, song 5 on side one, I believe?


#3

I’ll post here when it happens! Hehe


#4

Ooh good question! Technically first was a simplified version of Hit The Road Jack that my dad taught me.

Then I think it was I Wanna Be Sedated by The Ramones, still love that tune and teach it to students sometimes.


#5

It was a 12 bar blues like the one you tought in the course.
First I tried


And then I found out it‘s not as easy as it sounds.

#6

Oh cool, is this coming in the course?


#7

Nope, actually no Ramones tunes made it into the Beginner to Badass course, maybe in the next one. I do happen to have some old sheet music for it lying around though…


#8

Wow, thank you Josh, will do an in between lesson during the course myself.
