Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
Brian Emmel credits Sting, Paul McCartney, Chris Squire, and others for inspiring his personal playing style. During this program, Emmel teaches students the most basic skills they'll need in trying to master the five-string bass. He covers scale patterns, slap technique, and rhythm patterns common to rock, R&B, country, soul, funk, and the blues. Emmel also demonstrates some of the most important chords for beginners to learn and comments on various points of music theory that will help students better understand the songs they'll soon be trying to play. Viewers will be better able to follow along during this lesson if they already have some ability to read music.
