Blues on dominant 7th, 8th to the 12th fret.

Hi everyone, and welcome to this sixth lesson on how to play the blues on the electric bass. 

This will be the last one based on the basic blues chord progression, as shown down here.

Like in the previous two lessons, we will play bass-lines on dominant 7th arpeggios in all 12 keys, using exclusively the 8th to the 12th fret.


As always, since some of the fingerings might be uncommon, or even totally new for you, study each bass-line out of tempo, and play it multiple times, until you mastered those new fingerings. To see how to play the bass-lines, check the YouTube video here:

And following here the bass-lines, starting from the key of C and moving chromatically. 

Thank you for reading, happy practice and see you in the next one!
