Bass Note Chords for Acoustic Players

By Darren DeFranco


Hey guys,

Today we’ve got a very cool approach to bass note chords that acoustic players just love. This is Dave Matthews type of trick and shows that you can create an awesome riff by just changing one note in your chord. As those bass notes change, the static notes you are playing now become different relative to the chord. This creates a powerful emotional effect on the listener that is very appealing.

Enjoy the lesson, and we’d love to see what you come up with using this approach!
