Hip Hop Riff Of The Week 50: The Dayz of Wayback This week, we will be learning how to play the bass line to 'The Dayz of Wayback’ by N.W.A. This feel good groove is an example of great production and chop work from a great producer. I had to listen to the original sample to figure this one out, and boy was it worth it. This riff is in F sharp minor, and is a great example of how a bass line and a melody should compliment each other.Well look at that, we made it to 50! Let this episode represent a reflection of the musical journey we’ve all embarked on in the form of rhythm and bass, a look back on our growth in the past year (or in this case, 3 years ago on December 9th when the Hip Hop Riff of the Week first started), and a look towards the future. There’s always more room to grow, and grow we shall! Happy holidays and happy new year from Funky Tech Radio!Support the show!

Hip Hop Riff Of The Week 49: 8 Million Stories This week, we will be learning how to play the bass line to '8 Million Stories’ by A Tribe Called Quest. It sucks that our tribe was snubbed for a Grammy nomination this year, but the people love you and we thank you for your service! This bass riff outlines the beautiful sounding E minor 9th chord, and forces your hand to move beyond your fretboard comfort zone. But don’t you fret: with practice, this riff is both simple and very rewarding to play! RIP @iamthephifer @atcq @qtiptheabstract @alishaheed @jarobiwhiteSupport the show!

Hip Hop Riff Of The Week 48: Capitol This week, we will be learning how to play the bass line to 'Capitol ’ by Curren$y. This smooth bass line is the epitome of southern funk. The vibe is strong with this one. The key of A minor seems to be the name of the game, because every note is used. Southern funk always holds it down, so lets keep it G’d up! Support the show!

As a personal favorite, this bass riff had to be thrown into the mix. Dilla beats and DOOM bars are the epitome of hip hop, so tune in and catch the groove. We’re on the fast track to 50!

This week, we will be learning how to play the bass line to 'For tha Love of Money’ by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. We’re halfway to 50, so it’s only right that we take a trip to the midwest for some Hip Hop harmony. This riff is so simple yet so iconic. We talk about the Dorian scale and how it relates to the major key, which is D Major. Nothing you creatives can’t handle, so lets get to it! @bonethugsnharmony_ @eazyeogSupport the show!

This week, we will be learning how to play the bass line to 'Got’ by Mos Def. Another favorite of mine from his debut album Black On Both Sides. This riff is in A minor and uses practically every note in the A major scale. There's need to worry though, this riff is real easy to get. So lets get it! @yasiinbeyySupport the show!

This week, we will be learning how to play the bass line to 'No More Parties in L.A. ’ by Kanye West. Let us hop on the funk train and ride to a more recent era. This gem from 2016 came across my shuffle and the funk found its way to episode 43. The way the drums lock in with the bass do wonders for the groove, which makes this track a treat to dig in to! @kanyewest @madlib @kendricklamarSupport the show!

Hip Hop Riff Of The Week 42: Sally Got A One Track Mind This week, we will be learning how to play the bass line to 'Sally Got A One Track Mind ’ by Diamond D. This is one of those songs, (bass line especially) that I remember hearing throughout my childhood. I’m talking way back-before genres mattered and the groove was all you felt. Come take this trip down memory lane as we groove to one of the dopest Hip Hop bass lines ever. And to top it off, its only a four note riff! Lets get it! @diamondditcSupport the show!

Hip Hop Riff Of The Week 41: Way 2 Fonky This week, we will be learning how to play the bass line to 'Way 2 Fonky’ by DJ Quik. If you haven’t noticed the trend, the west coast legends have been knee deep in the funk from the gate! This riff is great practice for using the open strings on the bass, and helps you focus more on feeling than fretting notes. Lets continue following the funk!Support the show!
