Here's a lesson from Module 6 of this award-winning course:

Remember:

On bass, our job is two part: 

  1. Play correct notes & inversions with the rest of the team.
  2. Lock into the rhythm, play in the pocket & create a groove with the drums (specifically the kick drum), providing supportive complementary rhythms that match the drummer & rest of the team. 

Overall, our role is a supportive but important role on the team.
