Two Beat Feel with Jazz Triplets

Other devices for getting a grip on the jazz triplet feel? Practice utilizing chromatic runs, and also work on combining pull offs and open strings; which are a common approach made famous by jazz bass greats Ray Brown and Ron Carter among others. John Patitucci demonstrates many variations of this approach in the video by delving into both right and left hand bass technique.

Finally, one of the best ways to master double bass jazz techniques like the two beat triplet feel is to mimic what other bass players do. As you expand your abilities learning how to play bass, you need to expand who you are listening to, watching and playing with. All of these are rich sources of learning and will serve you well in your journey to bass mastery.

So enjoy John Patitucci teaching and playing double bass in the above video. And pay close attention to not only his amazing double bass technique and jazz style, but also to the choices he makes, especially where he inserts jazz triplets and where he lays back.
