A bare-bones demonstration of the bass line for YYZ.

When I play the opening unison run, slowly, along with the metronome, the tidbits after the main run are not counted out correctly. I'm just using the metronome for general time keeping.

On thing to keep in mind when playing this song is to strike a balance between playing with enough force to get a good "aggressive" sound out of the bass but not so hard as to choke out the notes and potentially lose your speed and dexterity - as speed and dexterity are two things you'll definitely require to master this song. A bit of luck wouldn't hurt either.

I'm sure I could have done a better job on this but if I'd have kept putting it off I might not ever have gotten around to posting it.

I'll try to follow up shortly with the next video that will demonstrate the remainder of the song including the bass "solos".

Also, at the 1:50 mark I refer to "the A string" in error. What I meant to refer to was the "A note on the G string".
