In this video double bass lesson I show you how to play a funk bass line on the upright bass. I explain some of the techniques I use, such as adding rhythmic embellishments, ghost notes and playing in thumb position. Then we take a detailed look at how to add a wider variety of fills to develop your bass lines and get them grooving. The lesson features one of my original compositions called ‘Marco’s Groove’.
I teamed up with BassTheWorld.com to release this one. They share some amazing bass related content from across the internet, including bass performance, lessons and gear reviews.
I hope you enjoy the lesson and my composition, best of luck with your practice, cheers Geoff
