L290 Em pentatonic bassline

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites Please enable Javascript and Flash to view this Blip.tv video.

A relatively simple bassline using only notes from the E minor pentatonic scale – E G A B D.

Im experimenting with my new audio and video setup:

A Creative Vado HD 3rd generation pocket dv cam for video. Not enough light in this shoot, will be better in next video:)

And for audio; a TC electronic RH450 amp direct output into a Apogee Duet soundcard into Garage band (mac)

On the Jazz Bass Im favoring the bridge pickup and rolling back on the tone control (Jaco style setting)

RH450 amp settings for this lick:

Quicktime mov original
iPod mv4
Flash flv

Want the transcription + TAB for this bass lick?

Did you like this?

If so, please bookmark it,
tell a friend
about it.

Links from youtube videos goes to the page with the particular lesson, on that page there is a download link to transcription/tab. Look at the last 5 or 6 “Lick of the day” uploads, all with download links

I saw on You Tube that standard notation parts are available for certain tutorials. I can’t find them on the site. Could you please indicate (clearly) how I can get to them? Thanks, Diane

A “practice tempo” is a tempo where you can play the line fluently and precise;-)

What do you mean for “rolling back tone control”?

Thank you!

I have no problem with the video on my mac here, are you on very slow computers?
Bass is loud too.
Maybe you should just download the iPod version?

The video is freezing up and the bass is very low! All other videos are working. Please help, need my fix!

…sounds OK, but the video was jerky and delayed when I viewed it (has been quite OK for a long time with the “old” setup) Hope this is not permanent :-) /Steve

Well, there is info about pickup balance and amp settings in this one;-)

Hi Marlowe

Nice lesson, I wonder where you get so much inspiration.

One day I’d like to see a lesson about tone, pickup balance and amp settings, etc

Regards from Portugal

pudsy440: has any other member here noticed that playbassnow loads faster than it used to?? I'm finding it much faster lately, I haven't changed anything computer wise. Just curious. :)

MarloweDK: Well, i use different fx depending on the gig,and sometimes nothing at all. You can get far with just a octaver and autowah. Maybe add a fuzz/distortion of some kind

niftywiz: Sir..plz advice me a Effects processor for Live performance.

Mr Tibbs: WAZZUP Marlowe DK, Awesome Job with Larry Graham and the others...Keep Doin Your Thing Brutha!!!:-)

brainlock1: Hey Marlowedk, I don't know how I missed the Larry Graham meeting that you had back earlier in the year, (both the interview and actually playing his bass onstage) but I just wanted to say congratulations! I could see how much respect he has for you and what an honor it was to see that come to fruition! Thanks for all you do... Cheers. Bryan in Kentucky

MarloweDK: Finn: Its hard to find good Band in a box patterns, i usually just use the "Funk 70s style". Ill think about tutorials. In the mean time guest teacher Paul Wolfe has done some

soporific: Thnx @jazzperdk. That's an amazing video and Mr DK is the main basscat:-)

Finn: Hey Thomas, I just downloaded Band in a Box, and I'm having a little trouble making a good backing track, could you possibly do a tutorial, or maybe link me one that you found helpful? I also had some questions regarding tetrachords, is there a way I could message you about them? Thanks, Finn
