Advantages Of A 5 string Bass (you can’t do these on a 4 string)

Last week's lesson was 5 String Bass: What You NEED To Know!

A few of my amazing subscribers pointed a couple of things out that I didn't mention in those videos so here they are.

In fact, I use these a lot and they'e got me out of trouble on a gig more than once:

  1. Change key easily
  2. Quick access to 5ths (below the low notes on the E string)
  3. Familiar patterns and position playing

By the way, I'm using my custom made Zoot Funkmeister in this video. Such a cool bass!
