Major Pentatonic Bass Jam Session

This is a fun thing you can improvise on bass as part of your practice session.

You may even end up writing a cool piece of music you can take to your next band rehearsal.

The idea is to take a simple E Major scale and create a groove using E Major Pentatonic to make it sound more "pro".

In the bass lesson below, I'll take you step by step through the exact process.

Scroll down for the PDF with the scale shapes as well as a funky drum beat to groove along to.
