I already have plenty of bass guitar lessons based on the major and minor pentatonic scales. These are incredibly useful and common scales to use in bass playing so you definitely need to know them!
This lesson focuses on 5 string pentatonic shapes. Make sure to scroll down for the free PDF with all the shapes and a nice and slow backing track to practice along to.
ALL 5 String Minor, Major, Minor Blues, and Major Blues Shapes [FREE PDF]
Here's a backing track you can download and play these shapes along with. You can also play a solo using the shapes in the PDF below.
You can also match up the chords to a pentatonic scale:
- Major pentatonic for major chords
- Minor pentatonic for minor chords
Here is the chord progression:
Cm7 / Cm7 / EbMaj7 / EbMaj7 / Fm7 / Gm7 / AbMaj7 / Bbsus2
Play a Bb Major Pentatonic over the Bbsus2 chord. All is revealed in the video lesson above so make sure to watch it till the end!
