Hammock Blues > Melody & Bass

In this lesson we begin by reviewing what was covered last week, then we discuss the importance of the bass line. Pay close attention to the rhythm and tempo of the song and establish a strong foundation before you try and play the slide. Also remember that less is more when playing slide on this song! Keep it simple.
