Thread: Bass Line

  1. #1

    Default Bass Line

    I have some Baritone Ukulele (DGBE) music which Iím using for my tenor guitar. In it, some of the pieces have the melody (TAB) on the first 2 or3 lines which I understand and am able to play, but thereís also a bass line on the bottom lines. Iíve had the book (Gospel Baritone Ukulele Solos, by Ondrej Sarek) for a long time but have never figgered out how to play the bass lines, so I only play the melodies.

    Can anyone solve the mystery for me?

    On the baritone ukulele is played mostly fingerpicking. The thumb of the right hand, plays mostly the bass and the remaining fingers the tune. If you play with a pick, it is not always manageable.
    Here is an older recording from the book.

    Yes, Ondrej, I just realized that as I was eating breakfast this morning. I guess I’ll just have to stick to baritone with your book.

    I have two or three of your books. They’re pretty good. Thanks for your help. I just wasn’t thinking clearly.
