Moroccan Rhythms (Gnaoua) - Learning & Bass Jam

Post by hestan » Sat Mar 17, 2012 1:19 am

Hi guys,

Here's a link to a Blog Post I did with a Moroccan Inspired bass composition and a quick lesson on Gnaoua Rhythms - The Music Of Morocco - and applying them to the bass.

They use a swing on the castanets that's really unique and challenging for western musicians... :-)
