5 beginner bass lines

Beginner Bass Lines, Beginner Bass Lesson

 In this lesson, you will learn FIVE beginner bass lines that people will instantly recognize. 7 Nation Army, Stand By Me, You Really Got Me, Under Pressure, and my YouTube's subscriber pick. Bass is the coolest instrument ever, but it's cool to play licks and riffs that people recognize, similar to what guitarists and keyboard players get to do. HEY MAN THE BASS HAS SOME JAMS TOO! 

So in this video I'm going to show you 5 killer riffs/songs/jams that are based ALL AROUND the basslines that anchor them down. The COOLEST part is that these lines aren't hard - or course you have to work at it a little - but these are pretty simple and I picked them for TOTAL BEGINNERS, so you can get started today.
