How to Use Pentatonic Inversions
#BASSNATION in this week’s lesson release I’ll be showing you how to play the major pentatonic scale through its inversions. Really all you need to do for this is to start the scale on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th degree of the scale. This is an extremely useful exercise for fretboard navigation and just your general knowledge to jam, solo and more!

Hey brother! Love it, but it cuts off at 6:19….just when the groove is getting good!
Hey! Thanks man. Not sure why it would do that. Playing all the way through for me. Let me check that out for you though.
Yeah, it works now! Thanks brother!
Hey try refreshing page! Should work now, apologize for that! 😎🤘🏾
Yeah same, it cuts off right when you’re about to demonstrate over the groove you created.
Should be fixed now. Just refresh page and should be all good😎
Could we get the full video for this lesson 🙂
Hey! The issue should be fixed just refresh page and should be all good✌🏾
Why do you have so many knobs? I have two, someday I’ll only have one.
Good question, this is an active bass, so the knobs are as follows: volume, blend, treble, mids and bass
Nice. Great lesson, I said to myself “why didn’t I think of that”
Hey Daric, what type of loop box are your using to create the background layering sounds with your ax ? AWESOME,gotta get me one.
It’s so awesome and I use it all the time! Called the ditto looper I’ll try to put a link to it here Ditto Looper
hear this yesterday . . freaked out. Brilliant melodious practice – If I can master it!! 🙂
You where talking about the different modes. Do you think in inversions of the major Scale? Or do you just play major pentatonic on a major chord and minor on a minor chord? For example when we are in the key of C and we have a Dm chord, will you use an inversion of the C major pentatonic scale or rather just the D minor pentatonic? Or both? 😉
Great question! It’s actually a mixture of both. As well as thinking modes, triads and arpeggios. Sooooo many possibilities 😎
