Welcome bass players and other musicians!

Welcome to 12barbluesbass.com!

We’re going to look at some common 12 bar blues patterns and rhythms, and apply them to the bass guitarist’s role in the music mix.

I’ll demonstrate using video so you can see what I’m doing, which you can then duplicate easily enough.

Whether you’re just getting started on the bass guitar, or are a guitarist having to fill in at the local jam session, or just need to lay down some blues bass lines for practice for yourself, keep coming back to 12barbluesbass.com and study with us!


Equipment notes:
I’m using a couple of short-scale Fender Squire bass guitars, a Hartke bass amp, Monster cables, a Korg PB-01 pedal tuner, as well as an Alesis SR-16 drum machine.
For the video production, I am using the Canon Rebel T3i, a Yamaha EMX512c mixer/amp, and Shure microphones.
I use Neck Diagrams for the fretboard graphics.
