You may have noticed that this is the chord progression to Get Lucky by Daft Punk. I got the idea for this lesson from this No Treble article containing Nathan East's original isolated bass line.

  • Wow…what a lesson Dan. Enough context in there to keep anyone occupied for weeks.
    Made me think more on how I view minor scales in relation to moving around within a chord progression. This lesson has definitely got my thinking cap on. I’m playing a lot of Funk, Chic, E W& Fire, etc and this lesson lends itself to that genre perfectly, adding a timely fill and getting back to that root for another phase.
    Thank you.

  • Hi Dan I was really interested in trying this lesson but couldn’t find the pdf. Is there a different link to that? I see the backing track…just would love the pdf also…thanks for all the great teaching.
