  • Hello GMC!

    -In this lesson we are going to learn fingering for diminished triads. Triads (3 note chords) are used in bass lines very often and they provide a solid foundation for a strong bass lines!

    -In this lesson you will face a number of Diminished chords which you will outline successfully by playing diminished triads patterns on a bass guitar.

    -You will practice diminished triads in various positions.

    Tempo: 130 bpm
    Time signature: 4/4
    Tuning: standard
    Difficulty: beginner

    Equipment I've used for getting this sound was: Peavey Cirrus bass with active soapbar pickups, equal mix of both of them with added bass and treble on onboard eq - then going to the nemesis (eden) amp with a 1x15" and slightly added bass and treble there (at 1 o'clock position).

    Feel free to ask me any questions in the lesson feedback and in my instructor board at forum.

    Enjoy and I hope you'll have a lot of fun playing this one!
