02 G Let the Marching Band Go No Bass mp3 wma
Time/size: 5 mins 15 secs/7.21mb
Style: Straight ahead Rock in G (130 beats per minute/bpm)
Backing instruments: electric guitar and drums.

Progression is: C9-G5 over 2 bars x 4, then a G riff over 2 bars x 4. You could think of the C9 chord as just a variation of the G chord. ie the C is the 4th (or 'sus' ie suspended) of the G chord and the 9th of the C chord is the 5th of the G.

You can get carried away with theory though - what we are really dealing with here is sounds.
The G riff runs down from the 6th to the Root - (6th, 5th, 4th, 3rd, 2nd to Root) x 3 & (6th, 5th, 4th, 3rd, 7th to Root) x 1.

I absolutely love Pearl Jam - that's what I had in mind when I was coming up with this track.
suggestion(s): Use the G Major scale over the progression and play the riff with the guitar.

You could also try using the G Mixolydian scale:

G Major is: G, A, B, C, D, E, F#

G Mixolydian is: G, A, B, C, D, E, F

Can you see the difference between the G Major (Ionian Mode) and G Mixolydian Modes?
The Mixolydian scale uses a b7 instead of the Major 7. That one note is the only difference between those 2 scales. Simple, but it gives a total different sound using the b7 instead of the Major 7th. Lead into the C & the G from the 5th of the C & the G - walk up using both the 5th-6th-b7th & the 5th-6th-7th. Play around with it - that's what this website is all about - not telling you what to play or that one thing sounds better or something is right or wrong - there are no rights & no wrongs, it's all up to your ear, imagination and your soul.

Music is not intellectual, it's about feel, groove, experimentation, exploration, communication and fun. Play it from your heart.

03 E Float Like a Butterfly No Bass mp3 wma
Time/size: 6 mins 24 secs/8.79mb
Style: Grunge-Rock in E (108 beats per minute/bpm)
Backing instruments: electric guitar and drums
Progression: E - F#sus7, Bsus - A7
Suggestion(s): Play Root and 5th notes for each of the four chords and build a bass line from there.

Below is an example bass line using only the Root and 5th notes of each of the 4 chords. Play around with those notes and then add more chord tones later on.
