How To Play Bass Guitar – Sting – Bring On The Night – The Police

Here’s an older bass guitar tutorial that I filmed – it’s Bring On The Night by Sting and The Police.  I’ve got a real soft spot for this tune and bass line – as it was one of the tunes (and albums) that I used to playalong to back in the day.  It was so back in the day that it was on vinyl – man, I had great ‘lift up and drop the needle’ chops.
