Gm Pentatonic Scale For Bass Guitar – High Position

Gm High positionWe continue to explore the minor pentatonic scale, this time in the D minor (Dm). There are two positions in which to play this scale; this lesson covers the high position. If you haven’t done so already, I recommend you first learn the low position.

As always, remember your basics:

⁊ Start slowly

⁊ Play it 10 times, perfectly

⁊ Increase speed slowly

⁊ Learn the basic scale first; add extensions 1 at a time

Remember, this isn’t a race. Strive for accuracy above all else. Increase your speed just two beats (per minute) at a time, playing the scale perfectly ten times in a row before adding another two beats. Learn the low position of this scale before moving to the high position.

Practice this scale every day for one week, then review it twice a week for the rest of the month. By then, you’ll have it committed to memory for life!

Aim High – Play Low!
