From a musical standpoint, these kinds of bass lines can be a bit busier and more melodic since they exist in a range that’s “singable” (at least by the baritone section of the choir). We can learn a lot about what makes a great line by dissecting classic bass performances from blues, rock, funk, and disco. A classic example of bass guitar in early hip-hop is The Sugarhill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight,” which samples the bass line and beat from Chic’s “Good Times.”

Even just wearing your everyday street clothes is going to communicate something to the audience. It sounds annoying and unfortunate, but I guarantee that you do it too when you see a concert: judge a band based on their rags.

Do you have a two-minute number that somehow feels like it’s dragging on without going anywhere? Maybe you need to add a bridge. Does the move from your verse to your chorus feel overly sudden, leaving things disjointed? Consider using a pre-chorus to ease that transition. Do you want a place for the audience to clap along? Sometimes doubling up the last chorus can accomplish that nicely.

For now, perhaps the most important lesson is that there is something to be learned musically from every artist, even perpetually teenaged Canadians.
