Funk Rock in E by Tommy Vickery is a free bass guitar video lesson that will teach you a couple bass lines to play over a funky rock groove in the key of E. We will use track 15, E7#9 Rock, from the Let's Jam! for Bass as our jam track. Because "E" is the lowest note on both the guitar and bass it has become a key that is used in many popular songs.
