Riding the Bass

Folk music often requires a strumming techniques I call “riding the bass.” In this technique, you pick the bass note of a chord, and then strum the chord. For example:


v v ^ v ^ v ^ v v ^ v ^ v ^ v v ^ v ^ v ^ v v ^ v ^ v ^

E +------3-------------0---------------0--------------2-------+

B |------0-------------0---------------1--------------3-------|

G |------0-------------0---------------0--------------2-------|

D |------0-------------2---------------2-----------0--0-------|

A |------2-------------2------------3--3--------------x-------|

E +---3--3----------0--0---------------x--------------x-------+
Another variation of this technique is used in folk music to establish a bass line and a rhythm pattern. The “bass” note may vary to create a more interesting bass line.
