  • Hello GMC!

    - In today's lesson we have a new blues bass groove on our hands. As in previous lesson, progression will be all dominant 7 chords one, often called "Chicago Blues".

    -In this lesson you are going to learn a new bass groove which you can use to accompany any dominant 7 blues accompaniment. You are going to learn which notes you can use when improvising this type of line and you will practice playing a shuffle rhythm on bass.

    -This lesson is in the key of G. You are going to use a appropriate mixolydian scales to improvise your bass line.

    -Key: G major
    -Tempo: 80 bpm
    -Time signature: 4/4
    -Tuning: standard
    -Difficulty: beginner

    Equipment I used for getting this sound was: Am Fender Jazz Bass deluxe, equal mix of both pickups with added bass and middle on onboard preamp - then going to the nemesis (eden) amp with a 1x15" and flat eq there.

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

    Enjoy and I hope you'll have a lot of fun practicing!
