The play along tracks are pre-recorded bass lines. If you are a drummer you can practice your drum grooves by playing along a real bass player. Some tracks include some form of click to make it easier to stay in time. But you can also chose to play to the bass line only.
You should be fine with most of the tracks, but not all of them are suitable for beginners. I’d recommend that you download the free files and try to play along.
All tracks where recorded by a professional bass player. The notes have not been quantized or time edited after recording. What you get is a recorded bass line with a natural feel and groove. Some parts are intenionally played ahead or behind the beat. No midi files or synthetic sounds have been used for the bass parts.
For every style there is at least one free bass play along for you. Most of them are only 3 minutes long and come with the the bass part and some kind of click. If you like them and want more tracks you are more than welcome to purchase the play along bundles with longer tracks and bass only versions at my online store.
You can go to my online store and purchase more tracks and style bundles. After your purchase you will be transferred directly to the download page. Un-zip (or decompress) the downloaded folder and you’ll get your mp3 files and the form sheet pdf.
Yes, you may use the free and the purchased tracks for live shows. But it would be nice if you mentioned my name and/or website.
Yes, you can use the tracks for your private recordings or YouTube videos of yourself playing to the bass lines. Please tag my name or mention the grooveline.eu website and contact me if you would like to license the audio files for commercial recordings.
You can make copies of the play alongs if you are using them on your different audio players, mobile phones or other devices. Please don’t make copies and give them away to your friends.
“bpm” is an abbreviation for “beats per minute”. So when a file is marked “bpm = 100” that tells you that the tempo is 100 beats per minute.
The audio tracks are high quality MP3 files. They can be imported into any mp3 player or audio software.
