Riff for Bass
by Toni Moretti

Hello everybody,
this time I want to put together a collection of bass riffs of historical importance. A lot of them actually are the theme of the composition. Only think at All Blues or /Footprints/ without their famous bass line...!

A good exercise is playing along with the original composition. Note that the most important thing is the rhythmic aspect rather than the notes; too ofetn we forget about this, and concentrate only on the scales, etc., leaving out the real role of the bass.

I have certainly left out some riffs, and so I'm waiting for you to end this work, ok?

This is the first of many lessons that I'm dedicating to the importance of the rhythm factor.

I hope you like it, see you soon and good music.. Toni.
