[MUSIC]
So this song is in E Flat minor,
and one of the things I do when I start
the song, is try to emulate the guitar.
I use a little bit of my fingernail.
As a, as pick.
And I then just grab some notes up high.
[MUSIC]
Do a little double picking.
So, it sounds like.
[MUSIC]
Little bit of a trill in there,
and for the most part, I'm just gonna keep
it simple.
Nice general cool bass line this is,
this is one of those, times where you just
get to be cool.
And of course playing the bass is cool
anyway, so.
But, check this out, and it's in E Flat
minor.
Here we go.
[MUSIC]
There's that guitar sound.
[MUSIC]
Try to make the bass sound like a guitar.
[MUSIC]
Even though the chords are changing,
right here for instance, next chord.
You can stay on the same note, E Flat.
[MUSIC]
Here's what it sounds like if I change
with the chord.
[MUSIC]
Still paying attention to the drums.
[MUSIC]
Now it's your turn, you get to jam along
with my friends, Ricky Lawson on drums and
Tracy Carter on keyboards.
I want you to be as tasty as you can and
don't forget to
check out some of the other video
exchanges, from the other students.
And then send me yours, and I'll get back
to you.
All right.
Let's do it.
