Subdivisions Simplified, Part 2

Shape the dynamics of the bass line simply by changing note subdivision and accents.

Changing your subdivision frequency is a simple, but surprisingly effective way to create more dynamics on the bass. Up your subdivision to eighth or even sixteenth notes to drive the song more. Or, shape the landscape of the whole song by accenting specific beats within the subdivision in one section of the song. Put it into practice with Hillsong's New Wine.
