Bass Lesson - Superimposing Pentatonics on a Major Chord
Thought I'd share a new lesson I've posted to me blog about using I IV and V chord pentatonic scales on a major chord. It includes a breakdown and video, check it out!
Here's lesson #2 in this series! http://www.mattlawtonbass.com/the-fi...tatonic-scale/
Is the backing track C major chords only and you're using I, IV and V pentatonics? Or, are you using I, IV and V chords on backing track?
C major only on the backing track :)
Ok, so you're able to play any of the scale tone chords over the C maj scale? For example, the I, IV, V would be C maj, F maj, G maj, which I think you mentioned in your lesson. Still learning about this stuff, will try it out today :)
Good stuff! Fishbrain haas a Quality lesson here.
Try it on II as well you'll get #11 in there... 9,3,#11,13,7.
Blues guys remember that all those minor penta finger patterns work in related minor key penta's. New sounds to the old muscle memories!
If you lay out all the notes it makes it easier to see how this works so you have...
C pent = C D E G A or R 9 3 5 13
F pent = F G A C D or 11 5 13 R 9
G pent = G A B D E or 5 13 7 9 3
The 11th if usually considered an avoid note so you need to be careful with the F but apart from that you're all good =) Check out lesson 2 to see the full positions of the major pentatonic scale, when you combine both lessons it really gives you a lot of freedom :bassist:
And zootsuitbass that is another cool one, it will be making an appearance in my next lesson!
Thanks guys =)
