I thought that today’s work was helpful and fun to learn. I like learning about new music and new people.
The hook theory video helped a lot on how to write chromatic notes, and the second video was helpful because it helps you learn more about all the tools. I liked how he slowly ran through the site too. Step by step. And making the bass line was fun to make.
I thought that the video that explained how to add bass notes was very helpful and also really cool. I also thought that his exercises were both very well explained and very well and it really helped me out a lot.
OUTSIDE / JOURNAL / IDEAS
The quizlet flash cards helped me a lot on Bass composition. I also realized that a lot of famous good songs do have great basslines.
I feel like it was somewhat hard for me at the beginning, but once I started to get it down it got a lot easier. I liked making a simple three note bassline, and trying to use different tempos along with it. I also tried to play Smoke on the water but I could not get it down.
I thought that the recording went really good. Its cool listening to yourself play something. Knowing that its you making that noise.
WHAT I LEARNED and PROBLEMS I SOLVED
What I enjoyed most was learning about Carol Kaye and the best bass player ever, James Jamerson. One problem I solved was with learning how to play the bassline on the 6th string. I could not get it down at first but I kept trying until I got it.
