L314 Bass solo ideas using the D Major pentatonic scale

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

Some fresh solo ideas for the good old Major pentatonic scale using larger intervals (4ths and 5ths), to get away from the usual Blues/ Country sound…Not that there’s anything wrong with that!;-)
In the end of the video I’m playing the D Major pentatonic scale straight up and down for reference.

Im playing to a click on 2 & 4

Thanks so much for such a challenging lick! The first time I head it, I knew I had to learn it. After over 30 years of playing, it’s so easy to become complacent, but something about that lick just clicked. It reminded me of the rubbery lines from Jeff Berlin with Bruford or Percy Jones with Brand X. Marlowe, you’re a treasure. Thanks again.

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
