If you’re doing the Beginner to Badass course, this lesson would fit nicely after we cover swing 8ths in Module 10.
Nailing the Pick Playing
If you’re trying to nail this riff with a pick and it’s your first go around, check out my primer on pick bass to make less of a mess.
Has anyone heard word about the new Green Day album, I think there’s supposed to be one this year? I’m curious if rich dudes in their 60’s can still punk rock like poor 20 year olds lol.
*PS - it turns out Youtube doesn’t reward ‘external views’ the same way, so I won’t be posting direct video links when I first start Youtube threads. It would help me a ton if you’d click the link to the Videos page and click in from there - you guys are the kind of high-quality views that signal to Youtube “this is a good video, I will show it to many bass enthusiasts, I am a good little AI”.
You nailed it @JoshFossgreen , this one checks all the boxes imo
I’d really like to see more of these videos (I think that the only other one is the smells like teen spirit one ) where you breakdown a line by levels
Now, on minute 1:21sh you said that you were explaining bar 2 later, did I miss the explanation?
I said “you’ll see why we’re doing that in a second”, meaning “why are we using the middle finger to start bar 2”… and I didn’t explain it explicitly, but it gets revealed when we add the missing note at the end of the bar, which we play on the 3rd fret with the index.
You better believe I had that J pickup turned OFF!
Sorry too late, already got the LEDs surgically implanted.
