L76 Harmonizing the major pentatonic scale

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Harmonizing the major pentatonic scale, E major to A major using ringing open strings.

The major pentatonic scale is also known for its “chinese” sound, (or rather the chinese among others traditionally use the pentatonic scale a lot, it is one of the most common natural scales)

The lick in the end is a tribute to David Bowies “China girl”

Want the transcription + TAB for this bass lick?
