Obviously, there are an infinite number of rock bass lines, in totally different styles . Overall, they are often thought in eighth notes ( in the funk music , itís the sixteenth note that is important ).

It is impossible to define what will be a pop or rock bass line, but we can give some famous examples, that may inspire you , depending on the tune you have to play .

Important: rock bass players often play with a plectrum , to obtain an aggressive and spectacular sound ! ( your strings must be new and your amp must have deep low bass )

We will include here the blues in its most traditional form , that is to say in ternary rhythm.
