This is my second lesson in this series about using pentatonic scales in your bass lines.
Because of the tonality of these five-note scales, pentatonics are very versatile and can be used in all sorts of ways and styles of music –pop, rock, funk, jazz… you name it.
In the previous tutorial, we took a very simple chord sequence that goes: A minor / Bb Major / C Major (2 bars) and we’ve seen that pentatonic scales can sound really cool. After this lesson, I got a lot of emails saying things like ‘I kept hearing this kind of melody –or lick… what were you doing exactly there?” etc.
So what I wanna do in this lesson is take one of those pentatonic licks and show you how I ‘dissect’ it to build other licks, rather than playing the exact same one over and over again.
