Power Chord Bass Note Trick

By Eric Hufschmid


 

Hey guys,

Today we’ve got a nifty trick to teach you often found in alternative music. The basic idea is that you create a power chord riff but then alter the first note on every repetition. Typically, this bass note will follow a chord progression. This method is great because it allows you to create a catchy riff that still has harmonic motion.

It’s a lot of fun, so give it a try!

 

Try making up a riff of your own and then changing the first note on every repetition to follow a chord progression.
