Funky Bass Groove #2 in G7 (L#67)
Want more funk bass lessons?
I got such a great feedback following the ‘Funky Bass Groove in C7‘ lesson that I decided to make another one, this time on a G7 chord, for a change.
This time we’re gonna be grooving and creating a bass line on top of a good old Hammond organ –or ‘underneath’, rather.
Like in the previous lesson, I’m ‘deconstructing’ the groove so you can see — or rather hear all the workings and learn the whole groove section by section. Some parts may take a while to get under your fingers, so practice slowly and get it right before you play them at ‘full speed’.
One of the things that make this groove a bit special is that I’m not starting on the root note (here G), but on the flat 7th. When used appropriately, starting on another note than the root note can sound great, provided you respect the harmony, of course.
