I love these videos for beginning bass. I have been playing off and on for several years but never learned until recently that you could actually sometimes play some songs using simple Quarter Notes like he does in this video. So this video, though it seems basic, was helpful to me. I had always thought that you needed some "syncopation" in most modern music. It's funny, because this is much simpler than what he does in most of his songs and so it's not really what I would call the "McCartney style". I guess he chose to pick one of his songs that had a very simple rhythm and line. What do you think of this simple quarter note rhythm? I'm surprised how often it can be used since I've done it in some parts of songs recently. They don't all need a syncopated line (using 8th or other notes).
