Bass Chord Progressions

One of the best ways to increase your Bass improvising skills is to Jam (play with other musicians). But it may be difficult finding musicians that are willing to sit there and Jam while you are trying to develop your skills. So the next best thing is Bass Chord Progressions!  Use these bass chord progressions to practice your Bass Playing to. These chord progressions are basic and are only intended as learning tools to allow bassists to practice their “chops” (feel free to download / save these video files).

We will be adding new chord progressions whenever possible so don’t forget to check back from time to time to see what’s new! Be creative; try different notes in different orders, try different scales, try repeating notes, and work on finding all the root notes. Start slow, the speed will come later.The whole idea here is for you to learn to use different notes over different chord progressions – to learn to “improvise” – have some fun while your at it…
