Quick Tip: The Mr. Fingers ‘Can You Feel It’ Bass Line

This video, via SynthMania, takes a quick look at an old-school sequencing trick, using a drum machine to rhythmically clock an arpeggiator (or sequencer). 

It’s demonstrated with the Larry Heard (Mr. Fingers) Can You Feel It bass line, on a Roland TR-909 and a Juno-60. The same basic approach can be used to create more complex sequences, and shifting sequences where the rhythmic sequence and the melodic sequence are of different lengths.
