Bass Practice tool JAM

Here is a backing track video to jam with in the key of E minor. There is no bass line so get creative and tighten up your chops. Try adding arpeggios to add flavor and complexity to your playing. I love minor arpeggios and this song is a great chance to apply them. You could also try more of a walking bass line technique. Maybe even break out the double bass with a crazy slappy walking type bass groove. Traditional swing bass lines would go excellent also.

Under the video is a link to my soundcloud where I have a bass line added, use it as an example. Have fun, any questions feel free to comment. Also share in the comments any recordings you might make with this or interesting techniques you come up with.
