L314 Bass solo ideas using the D Major pentatonic scale

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites YouTube Preview Image

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.
