Writing For Bass

This week is gonna be a little different. There's no real way to practice this stuff without just writing, so instead of asking questions, I'll just give you three chord progressions that you can write basslines for. I'll also include links to recordings of the progressions being played without bass, so you can try your compositions out if you know how to play. if not, try to write them from what you know, send me the written version, and I'll try to make you a recording of what it would sound like.

(The winged brackets are repeat brackets, they indicate that the passage is played twice. The first two examples resolve back to the first chord at the end. The third has an extra figure.)







And that's that!
