In this clip we are going to discuss how to play bass. The role of the bass player is two things basically and then you can expand on it as you progress but the first role that the bass player has is to follow the kick drum to some extent because the rhythm section is the responsibility of the drummer as a bass so it is very important that the bass sound of the guitar is matching whatever the kick drum is doing of the drummer, if that makes sense. The second thing is to musically match what the guitar players are doing and the basic way to do that is to figure out what chord the guitar player is playing and just play the lowest note or the root note of the guitar player and if you could match playing the root note or the lowest note of the guitar player and matching the kick drum then you will become a bass player.
