How to Sweeten Up a Simple Bassline

Here’s a technique I use on almost every song, varying octaves.  In this video you’ll learn how to use octaves in 3 different variations.  But, the variations I show you are not the only ones out there.  The beauty of what we do as artists is that there are almost limitless possibilities to how we can inspire emotion, create grooves, and add different “feels” to the songs we play.  Learning a technique is only the beginning.  However, to use the technique effectively requires that we listen to how other artists use the same technique. Spend time listening to some of your favorite artists to see how they use octaves and other techniques to enhance the song.

As always, I welcome you’re questions, requests, and feedback!  Mike
