Bass Line 10 - Root 3rd Root 7th 5th

10 Bass Line Root 3rd Root 7th 5th mp3 wma
Drums and bass only. Approx 1 minute, 1.4mb.

With this bass line we are using all the chord tones from each dominant 7th chord. This was discussed in Bass Lesson 08 - Root 3rd 5th 3rd. So really all we are doing is playing with the chord tones from each chord here.

Once you are comfortable with this bass line you should create your own bass lines using these notes. Play them in reverse, move the notes around. See what you can come up with on your own.

The tab for bass line root 3rd root 7th 5th for each chord played on Bass Line 09 is played as follows;

Bass line over the E chord:
G|--------------------------
D|--------------------------
A|--------------7--7--5-----
E|--0--0--4--4-----------7--
Chords
|---E-----------------------

Bass line over the A chord:
G|--------------------------
D|--------------7--7--5-----
A|--------4--4-----------7--
E|--5--5--------------------
Chords
|---A-----------------------

Bass line over the B chord:
G|--------------------------
D|--------------9--9--7-----
A|--------6--6-----------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-----------------------------------------------
