L255 Em7 dorian lick 1st position

The first of a series of licks in the 5 different positions of the Em7 dorian scale. This is the minor scale that is used the most in rock, jax and funk , when playing over minor7 chords. You can look at it as a mixolydan scale with a lowered third 1 2 b3 4 5 6 b7 Start with the first position using all the open strings, i play a lick using trills and hammerons The lick ends with a GMaj9 arppegio (or an Em11 arpeggio starting on the third ),which ever way you want to look at it. Remember that Em dorian is the 2 step of the D major scale, so you could try and play your D major scale or even better the G lydian scale (major scale with raised 4th) Spelling out the dorian scale Em dorian inspiration video (Tal Wilkenfeld) Support PlayBassNow and download original video, transcription/TAB and mp3 version here

L256 Em7 dorian lick 1st position #2

Part 2 of this Eminor dorian scale in all positions series Still in first position but this time not using open strings, making it easier to transpose to other keys - You should be able to use both since open strings gives other melodic ideas because of the fingering, and its sounds really cool when the open string note overlaps a fretted note, see L255. I also incorporate some chromatic leading notes in this lick, here the notes fall between the octave E and 9th F#, you can view it as walking from E to F# using the note in between: E --> F --> F# Same applies in the next similar pattern, where we have the chromatic run from B to C# spelling B --> C --> C# . Its one of the keys to make scale patterns sound musical and interesting - adding chromatic notes inbetween the scale notes TIP when ever you have a scale with whole step intervals (2 frets distance), you can add the chromatic note between - the key is to put it rhythmically right. As a general rule the chord/scale notes should fall on the down beats and the chromatic on the off beats ie when playing the first pattern slow: Here with 8 notes: 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and 1 E F F# Support PlayBassNow and download original video, transcription/TAB and mp3 version here
