Join Jared Meeker for an in-depth discussion in this video The accented note, part of Bass: Teach Yourself.
- All right, so now let's check out some dynamics.…And that is, loud notes and quiet notes.…Specifically here, we're going to focus on accenting notes.…All right?…So you just play a little bit louder.…Let's start out and just focus on…the second fret of the D string.…And that's, on E, you're going to alternate fingers again.…We'll play four notes, accenting the first one…and the last one, like this.…(plays four notes)…So you can achieve way more dynamic range…and more groove with this.…
Definitely practice just that last example a little bit.…Once you have that down, follow me to the next example.…Here we go.…(drumsticks beat four-note intro)…(plays guitar example)…All right, so now let's do a similar thing…in the key of B flat.…Here we go.…(drumsticks beat four-note intro)…(plays guitar)…All right, so now let's check out this riff in D…and this also uses accents.…
Here we go.…(drumsticks beat four-note intro)…(plays guitar riff)…
