• Bass notes are the lower sounding notes that your thumb plays.


  • Every chord has a bass note. It's wise for you to learn off by heart each bass note for every common open chords.


  • For the D chord I made a mistake in the video. The bass note can be changed to the open A string or the 2nd fret on the thickest string.


  • A cheats way of learning the bass notes is if you know what strings to strum for every open chord then the bass note is the first string you would normally strum.
