In this video I'm going over a few different perspectives on writing basslines!!

I'm taking a very rudimentary approach from just following the root note of chords, to adding a more melodic approach within a scale, and then also taking pieces of chords and implementing them into your bass playing!!

If you're interested, check out the song I'm using as a demo, Polestar, here.

Thanks so much for checking out my weekly lesson at Musicians Unite!! I hope you found this bassline writing discussion helpful!! As always, feel free to leave any questions in the comments section below!!

Make sure you check back next week for another video, and in the meantime head on over to my YouTube channel and subscribe, and connect with me on social media!!
