Crazy Lick and Groove Lesson in D Minor

#BASSNATION I’ve got a quick lick and groove for you this week! The lick sounds super CRAZY but it’s actually a straight minor pentatonic scale. When you bring this scale up to speed it sounds like way more than it actually is! Grab your bass and dig in with me, as always take it at your own pace and make sure your notes are coming out clean, clear and precise!

    This cool, I even kinda’ sound okay as I slowly play up thru the D minor pentatonic, then down back to the F on E2 I mean! slowly Largo that’s on a good try lol. Any suggestions on were to go after F on E2.. as crawl around the bass.. Ty..

        That’s the right focus, if you can’t be precise then fast will be just be sloppy! At what point do you incorporate hammer-ons/pull-offs into your playing? I’ve struggled with this transition. Used to play drums, same struggle with sticking individual hits vs. rolls. What’s your advice for where and how to transition between plucking and hammer-ons/pull-offs?

          That is an awesome question. Believe it or not I actually started implementing that pretty early in my playing but it wasn’t on purpose lol. I’ll show you guys exactly how it can help and also how it can actually hurt your technique if you start too early
