L273 G swing groove with diminished chord run

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites YouTube Preview Image

A swinged groove in G using open strings, a double stop (6th, b3) and the G diminished chord notes for the fill.
This scale consist solely of minor thirds and as in the example in G contains the 1 , b3, b5 and 6. You can look at it as selected notes from the bluesscale (1, b3, 4, b5, 5, b7) with the 6th added and can be applied to all bluesy settings when using chords like Gm7, G7#9.

Standard round wound , but with “jaco” setting on the bass – favor bridge pu and roll back on tone control

Thanks – this is a great groove.

Two questions –
Do you have flats on that bass?
Where are your pickups and tone set for this one?
