Here’s a video showing the bass guitar beginner how to play bass to Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground) by The Jacksons:
This tune was originally released by The Jacksons on the Destiny Album – and is an interesting forerunner to the sounds and songs that Michael Jackson would develop on his solo albums Off The Wall and then his magnum opus: Thriller.
There’s a basic two bar pattern that the song is built on. And then there are fills – ranging from simple to complex at changes in section of the song. I teach the basic 2 bar pattern, and then I’ll teach you 4 of the fills. I suggest that you try creating some more of your own too!
