3 ADDICTIVE Piano Exercises You Can’t Stop Playing

The best Beatles bass line isn’t something that everyone will agree on, but I definitely have my favorite.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Morbi ipsum nunc, hendrerit quis blandit vel, scelerisque eget urna. Donec ut iaculis ligula. Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et malesuada fames ac turpis egestas. Praesent consequat leo ut ullamcorper pharetra. Sed sit amet dolor vitae augue consequat viverra. In hac habitasse platea dictumst. Etiam congue tortor ut dolor rutrum placerat. Ut porttitor iaculis ultrices. Sed porta suscipit arcu, quis tempor nisi elementum interdum. Ut consequat dictum urna a suscipit. Donec eu dapibus augue, vitae auctor nisi. Vestibulum iaculis at erat a euismod. Phasellus et augue nec quam iaculis feugiat. Quisque vitae quam vel erat fermentum varius. Sed at massa viverra, consequat tortor a, luctus sem. Nunc eu facilisis ipsum, non fringilla enim.

Donec nibh odio, lacinia non elit a, commodo cursus lacus. Suspendisse fermentum metus congue, sodales odio non, aliquam arcu. Nullam suscipit augue felis, ac varius justo consectetur a. Vestibulum tempor risus mattis turpis dictum, eget pretium arcu laoreet. Aenean dapibus augue et quam suscipit ullamcorper. Aliquam accumsan lorem orci, id imperdiet urna volutpat eget. Donec accumsan pellentesque diam, nec ullamcorper mauris rhoncus quis. Integer vulputate consectetur augue a vehicula. Aliquam erat volutpat.

You’ll learn:

  • The three almost ‘invisible’ skills that Paul used to create this bass line
  • How you can use these skills when you’re creating your own bass lines
  • Why skill #3 is probably THE most important (the entire bass line was built around this skill)

There are also two very curious things about this bass line. Firstly, Paul didn’t actually write this particular song – George Harrison was responsible for this one.

And even more interesting is that according to the Beatles’ recording engineer for this song, George at one point was telling Paul that he needed to ‘greatly simplify’ what he was playing. 

But the bass line that ended up on the recording is fairly busy and active, so who knows whether Paul ignored the request, or whatever he was playing before he was asked to simplify was even busier and more complex.

Whatever the case may be, the best Beatles bass line – along with the song as a whole – ended up being truly iconic, and hopefully, you can use some of the ideas in the lesson when you go to create your own bass lines.

Good luck with the lesson and happy playing!

Cheers,
