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
