Lesson: Metronome Exercise with a Slap Bass Groove in G

This time around, I have two lessons in one for you to try out.

The first part touches on the concept of practicing with a metronome. In this example, the metronome is counting on beats two and four.

To make this fun, the other part focuses around a sort of offbeat, Larry Graham-style rhythm.

We tie it all together – and make it even more fun – with a slap bass groove in G.

Let me know how it goes! Share your thoughts, questions and/or links to your videos based on this exercise in the comments.

For you gear heads out there, I’m playing a Lace bass this time around, which was a gift from a friend.

[Editor’s note: dig the shirt too!]
