    MOONDANCE

    Introduction

    Back in 2009 when I was starting to work out what kind of instructional content bass players just like you wanted to see, I produced a short se-ries of simplified bass line to song lessons with the intention of giving the kind of note-by-note instruction that I would have died for back in the day.

    Those lessons originally had very basic PDFs with them.

    However, when the website moved domains in early 2012 those PDFs got lost along the way. (Dont ask me where, I dont know. Nor does my tech guy.) So Ive reconfigured them, and added them to the sequence of Thank You lessons that you get when you subscribe to the free How To Play Bass Monthly Ezine.

    So these lessons break down songs into constituent parts - intro, verse, chorus, bridge, etc - and teach an authentic line for each of those parts. Often the line is simplified so that beginners can play along to the origi-nal recording and play something thats both within their ability range AND sounds like the original.

    The PDFs are extremely basic - but if you use them along with the video lesson that they correlate to...you should be able to piece the parts to-gether.

    These days my song tutorial lessons are more detailed and cover a much wider range of songs....but I often get emailed about the PDFs that mys-teriously vanished. And it was way past time that they got resurrected.

    WANT TO LEARN MORE SONGS?

    If you downloaded this PDF Im guessing that you want to learn more songs on your bass guitar? And youve probably already found out that the bass tab sites are often innaccurate and that it is a ton of hard work to learn from bass tabs.

    I offer a Song Resource that you might be interested in. Its called First Bass And Beyond...and its based around a weekly magazine that con-tains song tutorials like this one (only more of them, and more detailed).

    If youre interested in getting a bunch of song tutorials, then head over here and check it out:
