We’re taking a bit of a detour from our regular bass lick series lessons to work on moving around the fretboard and playing a line through all the keys.
In this lesson, we’re going to start with a lick in A minor, and work through the cycle of fifths. Each key lasts four bars each.
Follow along in the video, first at full speed and then at a reduced speed, and the transcription (PDF).
Here is our progression:
Am | Dm | Gm | Cm | Fm | B♭m | E♭m | A♭m | D♭m | G♭m | Bm | Em
