Here’s a fun blues bass pattern, based on the Pentatonic Minor (blues) scale. It fits well under songs like “Rock Me Baby” by BB King and “Tore Down” by Eric Clapton.
In the video, I demonstrate the patterns for E based on the root note at the 7th fret of the A string.
Here is a diagram of the notes to clarify which notes to play. Remember to practice slowly, let the patterns sink in, both into your finger’s muscle memory and into your mind.
This pattern is a little tricky for the right hand, but once it gets into your hands and head, you can create your own licks based on it for rock, blues, pop, and country.
