Bass Line 06 - Root 5th 7th Root

06 Bass Line Root 5th 7th Root mp3 wma
Drums and bass only. Approx 1 minute, 1.4mb.

The bass line we are plying in this lesson is almost a reverse of the bass line we were playing in Bass Lesson 05 - Root Root 7th 5th. I am pretty sure you'll be familiar with the sound of this bass line. It's a very common blues bass line to use. One that you want to make sure you master. Practice this until you can play it in your sleep.

The tab for bass line root 5th 7th root for each chord played on Bass Line 05 is played as follows;

Bass line over the E chord:
G|--------------------------
D|--------------------------
A|--------------5--5--7--7--
E|--0--0--7--7--------------
Chords
|---E-----------------------

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

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