This happened to me over and over (and over) again until I finally discovered what it was! It was hard to figure out why it sounded sooooo good when they played it, but mediocre at best when I tried to replicate that same groove. I’m guessing you’ve been through the exact same experience, so here it is… The secret folks is - great internal time, articulation and note length. It’s what I like to call ‘The Groove Trifecta”. Easy as that! Well, it’s actually not that easy unfortunately - but once you understand the concept, know what you have to do to, and carefully experiment and apply it to your own grooves, that is when you’re going to hear a real change in your own bass playing. In this lesson I’m going to show you a seriously killer groove that is going to get you focusing specifically on note length and articulation, plus there’s a pretty darn cool run in it too! I’ve broken it down bit by bit to make it easier to digest for you. Take your time, as some of the runs are a little tricky at first - but well worth the effort. As always, see you in the shed… Scott :) PS. In this lesson we’re focusing on note length, but as I mentioned above - “great internal time” is also a HUGE part of the ‘Groove Trifecta’… in fact, I would argue that it is by far the most important of the three as ‘time’ is the foundation of everything we ever play as bass players. If you want to push your ‘internal time’ to the next level I’ve created an entire course focused on this called 'A Masterclass in Time and Groove Development" which is in the Academy course library. You can try out the entire course, plus everything within the Academy for a full 14 day totally free. Click here to find out more: http://www.scottsbasslessons.com/bass-academy
