Bassline Academy – Conscious Club, Joe Dart

This bassline comes from the band Vulfpeck and their amazing head nodding bass player Joe Dart. If you’ve not heard any Vulfpeck then check them out. They are tongue in cheek and seriously funky and, whilst all the band members are great musicians, Joe Dart is a stand out virtuoso.

Conscious Club (Instrumental) is there bare bones instrumental backing to the song by the same name. It works as a stand alone track and in the absence of ‘the tune’ it’s Joe Dart’s bassline that serves as a lot of the melodic interest. The song form is ABCBCACB but if we’re honest as bass players it’s the A section we’re most interested in. Fast, funky and fun to play. Joe sticks to the groove impeccably throughout but when he does choose to embellish the line it is always exciting and lightening quick!
