Understanding and using triads within your bass lines is really going to help you grow as not only a bass player but also as a musician. Triads are chords in there most simplistic form. As bass players we can utilize the triads within our bass lines and from doing so it helps us expand on the information we already have available under our fingers on the fretboard. Remember… it’s important to understand why we play the notes we play and not to just play by ear. If you’re doing this it’s like making a speech or talk about a topic you don’t understand… all it takes is a little practice and you’ll get it! So… get in the shed! 😉
