    I'm so fortunate to be playing with a drummer that understands this. I actually played with a drummer in the past who, after I explained this, would intentionally play the kick drum at random, rather than playing a pattern that I could lock in with. These videos are great. Thanks for so graciously posting them.

    The notes he's playing are simple and it's great pocket stuff but if you listen to his right hand, he's got great right hand stuff going on there. Skip notes, etc..those things really add color to the bass line and make a simple bass line more interesting. Good stuff.

    It really is nice to find someone who is more interested in the song, and the message it tells. I have played bass for many years, and I get called on the play for folks sometimes simply because I am a pocket player. I tend to hear to much overplaying when I listen to worship music. I had a tragedy strike my life years ago when my best friend, who was my father died. I stopped playing altogether, and abandon my gift for playing for many years. I have started back, in fact, I just bought me a new 5 string bass. I have started to work on my playing again at the age of 51 yrs old. I am very happy that I stumbled across this channel, I have subscribed. Jason, I love the way you play, and my prayer is that God will bless you.

    I think it's a fallacy to believe a more intricate bass line creates an unsteady foundation. What makes the foundation unsteady is lack of listening between band members. The line can be intricate but if it doesn't work off the drummer's part and you can play it correctly, you get an unsteady foundation.

    Makes me really miss having a drummer in our worship service- we've got a pianist, two guitars, and me on the bass. Very different dynamic in that situation- playing sans drummer, the bass player becomes the rhythm section; my job isn't defining the chords so much, as the piano's doing that, but I better be hitting the root on the downbeat, or the rhythm's going to fall apart!

    I'm a bass player and I agree wholeheartedly in the approach to playing discussed here!! Too many musicians want to be the star of the show. If I watch a bass cover video, I'll know within the first few bars if I'll watch until the end. If they start riffing through the intro…I'm like, NEXT!!! In the pocket is where I'm most comfortable. My goal is to give glory, praise and honor to God! That's first and foremost! I'm not there for attention or to look cool..(although bass players just look cool when we play!! It's not our fault! Lol!!) But Mr. Moen, I appreciate these gems that you post and I absolutely love your music! I'm sure it blesses God, because it blesses me!! Keep giving Him Glory!!!

    Sometimes the drummers bass pattern change suddenly that makes the bass player not to follow the same pattern, so lets always be aware.

    Wow Jason nailed it! Solid foundation, match the kick, it’s about the song, the message and the words, (in the pocket). I notice he doesn’t play loud. A lot of musicians play too loud and busy, no dynamics. I’ve been playing in church since 1976 and appreciate his maturity. I’m a singer first but also play percussion, guitar and flute. I also do live sound and was trained by one of the top sound companies here locally. When I mix, I have the bass and the kick carry the song. Just like in professional recording. I wish I could hear just the bass, kick, vocal and a little piano, in that order. Thanks Don, I’ve been listening to you for years, (I think I got you on VHS, lol!)
