Soundgarden Style Bass Note Chord Riff

By Eric Hufschmid


Hey everybody,

We’re continuing our bass note chord study with an example in the style of Soundgarden. Soundgarden helped popularize alternative rock and the grunge movement, and part of that sound is derived from their use of bass note chords. We’ll show you a typical way the band might use these chords!

Have fun guys!


Try to get this riff as good as you can! Then, try mixing and matching your own bass note chords to get a Soundgarden type of sound. Finally, explore taking normal chords you know and changing the lowest note to see how that affects the sound of the chord.
