Sister Sadie on Bass - Playing the Tune!

Learn to Play 'Sister Sadie' on the Double Bass

In this lesson I teach you how to play the melody from 'Sister Sadie' by Horace Silver. It's a great tune and a lot of fun to play on the double bass.
There's a lot to work on as it has a rhythm that's hard to play at full speed and the final A section is in thumb position. 
I also demonstrate some walking bass lines for the B-section whilst the guitar plays the melody. 

Big thanks to my friend Simon King who played both guitar and drums on the backing track! What a player and I love the lines he plays at the start of his solo.
