L82 Funky Am bassline with fill

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Bass lick of the day:

Funky Am bassline, with fill .

In the fill im playing the E minor pentatonic scale with added chromatic notes over an A minor tonality.

Try it, will revive your pentatonic vocabulary – Em over Am or put another way: play the minor pentatonic scale a fifth (E) above your rootnote (A)

Want the transcription + TAB for this bass lick?

Hi MarloweDK

I’m french, so i hope you will pardon me for my really bad english. Just to say: you are the teach that i should have since the beginning. I ike this groove with fingers or thumb, it’s excellent.
I try to work with the video but i’d like to get tab for a lot of lessons. For this reason, i donate 25 dollars by hoping to receive a link to donwload them, but nothing since 01/22/2010.
Could you, please, check if it’s OK?

Merci beaucoup

Hey Thomas,

Thank you for this lick and for this web site. I’m a big fan of yours not just for your amazing talent but also for your selfless kindness in sharing. I’m working on this one and almost have it down, but I wish I had the talent to create stuff like this on my own. Not there yet, but you are helping me tremendously in my journey. Bless you man!

Tom

Man this is a great riff, i’ve been trying to nail it and add more too it, because I really like the feel of it. I “thought” I had the fill down but it turns out its a little different, imma keep working on it but through and through it sounded pretty funky.
