Damien Langkamer: Funk/Soul Bass Groove Development

Bassist Damien Langkamer put together this funky video to teach us how to build on the groove. (And how about that tone?)

Damien shares, “I’m taking a few simple groove ideas and expanding them each time round, to build on the groove. There’s two main ideas in this, a funky melody section and a choppy bridge section, both start off simply then get more complicated. I’ve tried to demonstrate this in the format of a performance so I hope you enjoy it! As always these are just ideas, not finished songs!”

  2. Aguilar Amplification

  3. Aguilar Amplification

  4. Mostly great, but doubling guitar lines by bassist is just wrong…
