Capping off this week  I've compiled a list of the top 10 Bass Guitar Lessons that were read on The Rock House Blog.

Click on the name of the lesson to go to it.

#10 Professor Jim’s BASS FINGER Exercise - In this exercise we will be working on getting our fingers to movearound the bass in a classically flavored example.
 
#9 Bass Guitar Lesson - Fusing the Blues Scale with Funk - In this lesson I am going to teach you the blues scale then I am going to show you a song I wrote a while back that utilizes every single note of the scale. The song is a hip funk groove that will take a little work to get under your fingers, but it has a slammin’ groove!

#8 Bass Triplet Finger Twister by Professor Jim - In this exercise I will be twisting your piggies’ into submission. This exercise is challenging to perform accurately. Be sure to practice first at a slow tempo and keep the notes dynamically and rhythmically even. In other words, make sure the notes ring with the same volume throughout and the notes are spaced evenly and not run together.
 
#7 Bass Guitar Lesson - Beginning Funk by Chris McCarvill - Rock House Instructor Chris McCarvill, who just went out on  The House of Lords 2009 European Tour left us with cool beginner bass guitar lesson on funk.

#6 Guitar/Bass Guitar Lesson - Interval Basics - Let’s break each interval down and I’ll give a small explanation of that sound, or a common use for that interval. Create your own scales. It’s awesome.

#5 David Ellefson's ROCK SHOP - Perfecting The Pocket - In this webisode David talks about perfecting the pocket that the bass player finds themselves carrying or creating.

#4 Guitar/Bass Guitar Lesson - Interval Basics - The first thing that you should understand in your interval study is what the intervals are in a major scale. Remember that the major scale is a constant in music theory. You will be using it again and again to compare and relate other topics.

#3 Bass Harmonics 101 - First we are going to take a look at how to play harmonics, and then look a little more in depth look at what they are. For the moment just think of harmonics as notes on the electric bass that have a little different tone that normal notes.

#2 Bass Guitar Lesson - Fusing the Blues Scale with Funk - In this lesson I am going to teach you the blues scale then I am going to show you a song I wrote a while back that utilizes every single note of the scale. The song is a hip funk groove that will take a little work to get under your fingers, but it has a slammin’ groove.

#1 Bass Finger Walking - Bass Guitar Lesson - In this exercise we will be working on getting our fingers to move around the bass in a classically flavored example. You should practice this in strict rhythm with a metronome.
