Creating bass riffs

how do I create a bass riff using hook theory

Hi, there are two way to create a bass riff in Hooktheory:

  1. Use our automatic bass riffs: Write down your chord progression and select one of our bass instruments in the band browser. In third column on the right you can choose from a couple of different bass patterns which will automatically follow your chord progression.

  2. Create your own custom bass riff. Select a bass lead instrument and write your own bass melody. There are some dedicated bass instruments, like Electric Bass or Bass Synth sound, but all other lead instruments also have a bass version you can activate in third column in the band browser on the right.

Please let me know if this helped and if there are any other questions!
