One of the greatest bass solos of all time was played by James Brown's bassist Jimmy Lee Moore. It's incredible in its simplicity, tone, note choice, and in the way Moore articulates the notes.
In fact, those expressive techniques are one aspect of what will allow you to play great blues solos.
Here are the others:
- Note choice. In this lesson, B Minor Pentatonic, B Minor Blues, and B Natural Minor all work.
- Rhythms and phrasing.
You'll learn about all these things in the video lesson below. Make sure to scroll down to download the backing track and PDF with the scale diagrams.
