The Songs That Taught Me Bass Ep1: Sunshine of Your Love

It’s time for a new video series! This is episode 1 in a series I’m calling The Songs That Taught Me Bass.

I’ve been planning on doing something like this for a while. Essentially, I’ll be going through some of the songs I learnt, in a rough chronological order. I’ll also talk about the concepts and techniques I would have picked up from them.

Enjoy this breakdown of Jack Bruce’s bassline on ‘Sunshine of Your Love’ by Cream. Officially, the first song I learnt on 4 strings, thanks to my Dad playing it a lot around the time I got a bass.

Transcription, backing track and isolated bass available on Patreon.
