Add A Bass Line To Your Chord Voicings

    Simply strumming chords to a song can get quite boring rather quickly. Here we are going to alternate between a bass line and the chord voicings to create a more interesting sonic landscape from some of the basic chord forms that you  already know.

    In the first example we’re simply going to play the root note of the
    chord and then play the rest of the chord. It’s a simple A-E-D chord progression:

    Now were going to take the same progression a step further to create
    a more  intricate bass line:

    You can create passages like the two examples above with any chords that
    you want.

    The example below is a G-C chord progression. It’s similar to the last
    example except it includes the hammer-ons. Pretty cool!
