How to Beautify a Boring Bass Line

OK, maybe not a boring bass line, but you might tend to get bored after playing a simple bass line and want to find some ways to play it differently, maybe even add a little more beauty.  This video teaches you how to add a 10th to your one-note bass line to create a more beautiful sound. The 10th is an octave to the 3rd and harmonizes perfectly with every chord root, as long as you know the difference between a major and minor! We’ll try this out on the Hillsong classic song, Oceans (where feet may fail).

Let me know how this goes.  I’d love to hear your feedback and experience with incorporating this harmonic technique!
