In this third lessons about using pentatonic scales on the bass, I'm taking another lick that can be played over our chord sequence, which was: A minor / Bb Major / C Major (2 bars).

Actually, it's a really common lick that you've probably heard on several funk records! But still, it sounds good, and, like the previous one, it can be 'dissected' and used in different ways.

But unlike the previous one, that was played in just one position, this one is going across three different positions. It's still a C Major pentatonic scale we're using, but played in different positions on the neck.

I'll do another tutorial talking about learning pentatonic scales in different positions on the bass, but... that's another tutorial. Let's have a look at this second lick first!
