    I love T-Square and Mitsuru Sutoh so much but now I'm only a beginner I can play only easy-Intermediate bass line
    My question is what should I practice some exercise or something or what song should I practice to be the path to these Jazz-Fusion or T-Square Song??

  2. Your question is too large to be answered. Get a good teacher. Practice for about 10 years.

  4. I only use a T Square for cutting drywall so I will pass on offering an opinion.

    Here's how I, personally, would approach learning a song like "Sunnyside Cruise": What is the time signature? Key signature? Chord progression? Any particular scales or modes? Is the song divided into sections? How many bars/measures is each section? Does "Sunnyside Cruise" have similarities with other songs I have learned in the past? Can I write a "simplified" version of the bass line, so I can jam along with the recording? Like maybe just play the root of each chord, on the downbeat?

    I also notice that the bassist on "Sunnyside Cruise" is using the "slap" technique. Do you already know how to slap, or is this technique new to you? Watch live T-Square performances on YouTube and study what he is doing with his hands. :)

    Mushroo again to the rescue.
    The answer to those questions will let you play any song.

  7. If I'd known it was that easy, I'd have done this years ago!

    what is an easy to intermediate bass line to you ?

    The song is quite chill, I like the vibe. I was expecting something stupidly difficult to play.
