Here is a demonstration/exercise i did of how i like to extend chords through use of pentatonic scales.
I am available for on line lessons and have a load of free videos on my website and you tube channel.
How good is your understanding of rhythm?
If you want help, read on......
This is the first video lesson in my YouTube Rhythm Series where I tackle note/rest lengths and time signatures. I also give you five rhythmic patterns to work on and drum loops to practice these with.
A free PDF worksheet is available in the video description on YouTube.
Any questions, then please ask, and please leave a comment if there is anything in particular with rhythm that you would like to see in future videos.
After going to the LBGS 2019 , i managed to get my 1st set of pro macus miller strings ,, stainless steel ,, more expensive than alloy , MM pro strings stainless steel less than half price
i have mainly used rotosound ,, so checking these strings out was exciting ,, rotosound give you a direct sound ,, what ever you hit , you get ,, i still say a great string ,, you get a 1 to 1 ratio ,, flat steel
so when i got the MM DRs i was not used to the extra dynamic ,, almost like a phantom mic sound / 1st time using a condenser mic ?? , you get a much richer sound from the strings changing the harmony of the bass ,,
means i am taking longer learning bass jams because the strings lend your ear to extend the harmony in a different richer way ,, where with rotosound being a flat 1 to 1 ratio the harmony stops earlier ,,
MM DRs strings makes my bass sound more dangerous than it already is
,,,, but in other bench mark tests ,,, unless i wait until the strings get older ,, do not have that flatter street funk one note sound ,,
we need Marcus Miller Funk Monster strings ; D ,,
eg Marcus Miller Street Jam Strings ,, all the dynamics of MM DRs ,, with just a touch of that One Note rotosound flat steel know how ??
