L269 C#minor groove

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

A great key for playing minor basslines – you have the thundering minor third (E) in the bottom.
Listen to Freedom by Jimi Hendrix for another example of playing in this key / position.
Almost only minor pentatonic scale notes with the exception of a chromatic note G# between the F# and G# in the first bar and the 6th (A#) in the last bar.
You can also choose to look at the notes as the C#m dorian scale with the 9th omittedYouTube Preview Image

You get it staccato with your right hand fingers. Mute a string immediately with your free finger when you pluck.
