On another string Mac said: I understand about the F, and where Em fits into the picture, what I would like to know more about is how do you guys go about using the minor pentatonic notes in a bass line. I'm Country - which is assume a I IV V progression and play root-five of each chord then get to the next chord with chromatic runs. However, I do not play Country all the time and see where pentatonic notes could be used in a jamming situation. My question deals with how would you use the E minor pentatonic notes in your bass line. I'm assuming (R-b3-4-5-b7) over the entire progression. Little something on which notes and in what order...... I'm a pattern guy, after the key is called I assume a I IV V or i iv v progression, until proven wrong, and use root on 1 and 5 on 3, if there is room the 8 is safe, still room the correct 3 and 7 will work, if I have room for them. Little help on using pentatonic notes in the bass line. How do you guys use pentatonic notes? Thanks.
