The Brown’stone: Modes, Triads, & the 2-5-1 (Part 2)

This week in The Brown’stone on No Treble, I’ll show you a fantastic exercise that will help you play almost any progression anywhere on the fretboard. Using this method will help you create bass lines, play walking bass lines, and even solo in the higher register of the neck. I think you’re going to dig this one.

Be sure to check out Part 1 as well.
