In this video lesson I'll demonstrate how to start thinking more like a drummer/percussionist.
The idea is to practice playing along with songs etc. Just tapping out rhythms on your knees, desk, steering wheel - whatever. Once you're into the idea of doing this, you can 'vocalize' these rhythmic ideas first with your mouth, then with your bass using a single note.
The next step is to take the same rhythm and apply notes from arpeggios etc to it to create some really tasty bass fills!
If this sounds complicated - don't worry. As you watch the video you'll see just how simple and fun this concept really is!
Thanks for checking out my lesson,
