Here’s a breakdown of the bass part, the timing, and how to play those cool fills.
Some tips to play this song well:
- Use the silence and “space” in the song. If you play in the beginning, keep it subtle.
- Count the measures – know how to count through the parts to make sure you’re coming at the right time.
- Pay attention to how the song builds throughout. The song starts off in a very meditative form, but is slowly building and getting bigger. Play with that same mindset.
