Bass Chords #4

In this final Chords lesson, I step you though playing “lush” triads on the bass, how through adding the fifth you can really beef up the sound of the classic 10th & root combination. I also look at playing over open strings, a beautiful sound made famous by tunes like Jaco’s “Blackbird.”

As well, I’ve tracked down the article I wrote years ago for Canadian Musician Magazine on playing chords on the bass. It makes a nice companion to this particular lesson, I highly recommend you download it and check it out, it may help answer a few questions.
