Major Pentatonic Scale for Bass Guitar
The Major Pentatonic Scale is one of the most important scales in modern music. Many classic bass lines are crafted using this scale. Below you will find video clips for the following keys: E (high and low positions), A and D.
In addition, I’ve added standard notation for all keys listed above, as well as Bb, B, C, Eb, F, F#, G and Ab.
As always, remember your basics:
⁊ Start slowly
⁊ Play it 10 times, perfectly
⁊ Increase speed slowly
