Bass Line 03 - Root to 5th

03 Bass Line Root to 5th mp3 wma
Drums and bass only. Approx 1 minute, 1.4mb.

Ok, now we are going to add the 5th degree of the scale to our root note from Bass Lesson 01 - Blues Bass in E. The interval from the 1 or root note to the 5th note in any scale is called a perfect fifth.

The tab for the root to 5th for each chord played on 02 Bass Line Root to 5th is played as follows;

Bass line over the E chord:
G|--------------------------
D|--------------------------
A|--------------------------
E|--0--0--7--7--0--0--7--7--
Chords
|---E-----------------------

Bass line over the A chord:
G|--------------------------
D|--------------------------
A|--------7--7--------7--7--
E|--5--5--------5--5--------
Chords
|---A-----------------------

Bass line over the B chord:
G|--------------------------
D|--------------------------
A|--------9--9--------9--9--
E|--7--7--------7--7--------
Chords
|---B-----------------------

If you aren't sure which chord is being played when, the progression is the standard blues progression that we used in Bass Lesson 01 - Blues Bass in E which is:

E E E E
A A E E
B A E B

The turnaround in bar 12 for the above bass line is played as follows:
G|--------------------------------------------------
D|--------------------------------------------------
A|--------------[(7) = tied; let previous 7 play]-----
E|--0--5--6--7--(7)--7--7--7----------------------
Chords
|---B-----------------------------------------------
