    The question came up before and the consensus was that there are no secrets, and if anyone tries to sell you some, they're lying.

    You do realize what you're asking for is both illegal and against talkbass rules. We will not facilitate the illegal transmission of copyrighted materials.

    If you want to know so badly, you're better off buying it.

    All I want to know is am I right in my summation thanks
  7. I-V is simply a fundamental harmonic progression where you can begin to build from it in many ways.
    for example:

    I don't really know what the "pause" means.
  8. Haha, the two options in your poll make no sense whatsoever...
  9. that's what makes it so much fun to vote.

    as someone has already pointed out this is a seriously good progression to start from it can also be written as the root-fifth.................what i want to about this so called "CG-X" system is, is it the same as this I-V pause/interval(to allow the musicians "room" to play, and be heard) an I believe the X means one other note from the scale. eg in the scale of "C" it would be C,G,-,D, for example. With the '-' signifying the pause/interval in the friend is insisting on buying this book i'm telling him he doesn't have to but I don't know if I'm right about this CG-X system, hope this clarifies everything for you all, any other questions don't be afraid to post.:bassist:

    the I-V progression is a fundamental music progression in practically every kind of music there is except maybe cRAP, unless they use a sample, for examples listen to James Jamerson, any american rock band ever, Led Zeppelin (with Zep, listen to how subtle John Paul Jones makes his rock groove, usually using the I-V progression as a start point!)

    do you want to learn a really good grooving technique which helped me get a couple of subbing jobs during the summer( before my bass' neck snapped, damn those cheap wood users damn them, i now need to save up for a new bass, as replacing the neck wouldn't give it the same sound!) anywho if you want to have a go at this technique send me an email at [email protected]
