Sync Me is a R&B bass guitar line reminiscent of the 70s style. This bass guitar line is filled with syncopated rhythms. Syncopation is when notes are played on the back-half of a beat and not the front-half or down-beat. If you are a beginning bassist, these rhythms can feel un-natural, but after playing a few of them they become second nature and fun to play!

The tempo is 104 beats per minute. If you have a metronome or rhythm machine, you may want to try starting at 50-60 beats per minute and working your way up to the optimum 104 beats per minute. Always remember to move your metronome setting up in 4 beat increments after a few successful runs on this bass guitar line.
When you reach 104 beats per minute, try playing along with the provided jam track. You will want to blend in with the drums and other rhythm instruments.
