OK, that's really cool, I've been looking for something to learn and that's a great start, just one question...


With the bass lines, do you play the same chord or do you omit that note from the chord if the finger used for that note is playing the bass line?


example, for C, would it be this (example 1):

-------0---------0----
-------1---------1----
-------0---------0----
-------2---------2----
--3 ---3---------0----
-------0-----3--------


OR, this ? (example 2):

-------0---------0----
-------1---------1----
-------0---------0----
-------2---------2----
--3 ---3---------3----
-------0-----3---0----

I'd more likely expect a pattern like this

For that kind of example (the exact one in the video anyway) you'd mute the 5th string and end up playing


e|0
b|1
g|0
d|2
a|X
e|3


Harmonically speaking the second example keeps the chord structure the same (the first example you end up playing an inversion of Cmaj6) but obviously there aren't really any rules when you're doing it: if it sounds good to you then do it!

thank you, that makes sense


Bookmarked under fun :P finally, somewhere to progress!


EDIT, and for the run downs, like for C, you're just playing the first fret with your index finger? T
