Creating your own interesting bass lines is something that I know students struggle with – one quick and easy way to create an interesting bass line is to use a technique called “bass line modelling.”
Here’s a short 4 bar bass line (repeated twice). The chord progression sounds like part of a Crowded House tune – but the bass line was created using the modelling technique with a Paul McCartney bass line.
I hope you like the bass line that resulted from this modelling exercise – more details of how to do it can be found on Day 22 of Cracking The McCartney Code. Click the link below for more info.
