Bass line construction lesson

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites CORRECTION! I say seventh in the video but MEAN FLATTED SEVENTH A quick lesson on getting ideas for basslines by paying attention to rhythm and repeating patterns. Examples are in the key of C When I say: Root = C Octave = Still C in a higher register minor third = Eb Fourth = F Fifth = G Flatted seventh = Bb Minor pentatonic scale = C, Eb, F, G, Bb

This is a great lesson. Rhythm is king! We forget that sometimes.
