Time to add another lick lesson to the series. This time around, our focus is on this funky fingerstyle bass groove, which is in the key of Dm or D7, using mostly the D minor Dorian scale with chromatic connecting notes.
This lick also relies heavily on open strings, for fast note doubling (D on open string to D on A string 5th fret).
Follow along with the video (including a part where I play it at slow tempos) and the transcription PDF (standard notation and tab).
For the gear heads, I’m playing a ’80s Yamaha BB3000A bass.
