Bass Lick Series: Cool Bluesy Bass Line with Fills in G
Here’s a new lick lesson for you, using a good fingering exercise with a Major Pentatonic scale. This is also great for practicing slides and hammer-ons.
The fills are mostly Pentatonic, with added flat 3rd (B?) and flat 7th (F).
The backing track is a one chord (G7) vamp, but you can transpose it and use it in many blues type songs. Follow along with the track and the video below.
For the gear heads, I’m playing a 1976 Fender Precision bass with Dunlop nickel roundwound strings with the tone control 1/4 down.
