BASS LESSONS BACHATA BASSICS 3 



IF YOU SAW THE BACHATA BASSSICS 1 IN MY BASS LESSONS BASS TABS,
YOU LEARNED ABOUT THE NOTE AND ITS 5TH NOTE IN THE FOLLOWING EXAMPLE

G|——————————————————————————————————————————|
D|———————7—7———————7—7——————————————————————|
A|——5——5——————5——5———————————7—7———————7—7——|
E|—————————————————————5——5———————5——5——————|
D Note A Note

(taken from Bass Lessons Bachata Bassics 1)


NOW IN THE SECOND BACHATA BASSICS I TEACHED YOU HOW TO PLAY THE 5TH NOTE'S ALTERATION

G|—————————————————————————————————————————|
D|——————2—2————————————————————————————————|
A|—0——0———————————3—3———————5—5———————5—5——|
E|———————————1——1——————3——3——————3——3——————|
WITHOUT ALTERATION

G|—————————————————————————————————————————|
D|——————2—2————————————————————————————————|
A|—0——0———————————3—3———————5—5———————5————|
E|———————————1——1——————3——3——————3——3———3——|<——————————
WITH ALTERATION

(taken from Bass Lessons Bachata Bassics 2)


NOW IM GOING TO TEACH YOU HOW TO PLAY THE ALTERATION FOR THE DEEPER SOUND
ON A 4 STRING BASS. NOW NORMALLY BACHATA BASS PLAYERS USE 5 OR 6 STRING
BASS I ACTUALLY USE ALL 3 OF THEM BUT STILL PREFER THE GOOD OLE 4 STRING.
HERES AN EXAMPLE OF HOW TO PLAY THE ALTERATION FOR A DEEPER SOUND ON A BACHATA RIFF:

G|—————————————————————————————————————————————|
D|—————————————————————————————————————————————|
A|——5——5———————5——5————————————————————————————|
E|———————5—5————————5—5———5——5—0—0———5——5—0—0——|


HOW YOU PLAY IT IN A 5 STRING BASS

G|—————————————————————————————————————————————|
D|—————————————————————————————————————————————|
A|——5——5———————5——5————————————————————————————|
E|———————5—5————————5—5———5——5———————5——5——————|
B|—————————————————————————————5—5————————5—5——|

ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF AN ALTERATION WOULD BE TO PLAY THE 5TH NOTE BUT ONE
OCTAVE LOWER FOR EXAMPLE:

G|—————————————————————| TIP: if you want the bass to sound
D|———————7————————7————| very deep and have a more
A|——5——5—————5——5——————| sustained sound move the
E|—————————5————————5——| string up and down ^v^v like
^ a whammy bar effect but do
|———————————————————butt do it for a little bit


SEE HOW THE "D" NOTE PLAYS TWICE ON THE A—STRING , THEN IT PLAYS "A" ON
THE D—STRING AND GOES DOWN ON OCATVE TO "A" BUT IN THE E—STRING.


Then we play what's called the basic Chorus bass line in this case we'll play with "D note":

G|——————————————————————————|
D|———————7———X———————7———X——|
A|————5————5——————5————5————|
E|——5———————————5———————————|

WHEN THE X IS MARKED ON A RIFF, TAP THE STRING WITH YOUR RIGHT HAND
WHERE YOU NORMALLY PLAY THE BASS (ON TOP OF THE PICKUPS)


NOW THAT YOU LEARN ABOUT THE TAPPING ANF DEEP ALTERATION HERE'S THE EXERCISE RIFF:

G|——————————————————————————————————————|
D|———————7———X———————7———X———————7———X——|
A|————5————5——————5————5——————5————5————|
E|——5———————————5———————————5———————————|

G|———————————————————————————————————————————————————|
D|———————7———X————————5———X———————5———X———————5———X——|
A|————5————5—————5—3———————————3———————————3—————————|
E|——5———————————————————3————3——————3————3——————3————|

G|——————————————|
D|———————5———X——|
A|————3—————————|
E|——3——————3————|
