This bass tutorial combines a very cool bass line and a blistering bass solo. What more could you want??
Hey Joe by Jimi Hendrix is one chord progression throughout with a chromatic bass line transporting you to each chord:
C G/ D A / E/ E
That chromatic bit only comes in towards the end of the original song but, in this lesson, I'll show you how to use chromatic patterns for the C G/ D A section, and a Minor Blues scale for the E chords.
The patterns can be found below along with a free PDF containing all the shapes.
