[info]Please Note: Headphones or External Speakers Are Recommended When Viewing Videos to Properly Hear the Bass[/info]
In today’s mini lesson we continue where we started off in riffing on a few cool ‘jaunts’ that make use of the pentatonic scale…
As before I just need to remind you to take a look at the previous video lesson entitled “Around the Fretboard In 5 Simple Steps” to ensure you have all FIVE (5) Pentatonic shapes below your fingers.
Secondly remember that in the video I am purposefully moving riffs out of the original key just for uniformity… In other words because the first video coached you through the Pentatonic Scale in the key of C, I am “forcing” all the riffs we learn today into “C”.
Once you have the shapes and riffs under your fingers feel free to move things around, not only back to the original keys of the recordings but also to any random key you like for both technique and ear training purposes.
Let’s take a quick look at a few bass riffs from;
- My Girl by The Temptations
- Beat It by Michael Jackson
- Billie Jean by Michael Jackson
