If you don’t know how to jam on bass, the whole idea of playing music with other people can be scary and intimidating. It’s much ‘safer’ to just stay in your room, playing by yourself.
But if you did that, you’d miss out on one of the most rewarding and satisfying parts of being a bass player – making music with other people. Especially creating music from scratch!
Luckily, you don’t have to know dozens of songs, thousands of licks or millions scales. In fact, you can learn how to jam on bass without any of these things.
You see, there are 3 super common jamming scenarios:
1. Jamming with you on bass and a drummer
2. Jamming with a chordal player, like a guitar or a piano
3. Jamming with a full band
For every scenario, there are slightly different approaches that you need to take, but there are also tips that will work in nearly every situation, and you’ll get those in the lesson as well.
Of course there are other kinds of situations, but these 3 are the most common, and when you know how to approach each of them, you’ll have no trouble jamming in any of them.
