In this bass lesson, I'm going to teach you a killer bass guitar lick that uses a triad and arpeggio from E Minor.
Specifically, it's the second mode of the D Major scale: E Dorian.
I'll teach you what all that jargon means plus how to craft your own bass lines and fills!

Killer Arpeggio/Triad Lick In E Minor - TAB/Notation
Follow the notation exactly but then use the shapes in the PDF above to make up your own bass lines and fills.
The note selections I've included come from E Dorian and the extended arpeggio you get from it.
That's just where you take a simple triad (Root, b3, 5th - E, G, B) and continue stacking notes in thirds (Root, b3, 5, b7, 9, 11 - E, G, B, D, F#, A).
You get quite a sophisticated bunch of notes that sound great in bass lines.
Have fun seeing what you can come up with!
thks, good explanation.
