L106 Bluesy descending bassline

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Bluesy descending line for use on Em7 or E7 blues dominant chords, transpose to other keys (Example in E and A)

Its actually just 2 sequences (the intervals 321 and 765) repeating changing octaves.

Use bits of it in solos , basslines, fills.

Reminds me of an old Earth, Wind and Fire song , dont remember which, do you?;-)

Hi Marlowe,
Any thoughts on why I can only get sound but no picture. I used to use to the download to open the lick with no problems. I don’t see that anymore. I can hear you but not see you. ???
Upgrade your quicktime plugin / browser, the majority can wacth the videos with no problems. Downloads off since i want the user action onsite
