Luke McIntosh: Breaking Down Joe Dart’s Bass Lines

Like most of us, Luke McIntosh became pretty obsessed with Joe Dart’s work with Vulfpeck. It started with the “Live At Madison Square Garden” concert but continued on with Vulfpeck’s entire catalog.

In the end, Luke transcribed 69 Dart bass lines and broke it all down. In this clip, he covers the two harmonic ideas Joe uses frequently, how his unrelenting rhythm makes his playing super exciting (while staying in the pocket), his “quintessential” lick, and five tips to getting a Joe Dart-esque sound.
