Useful Bass Licks


These are simple but useful licks that can easily be worked into songs as opposed to only being used in solos or when you are home practicing


Lick #1 A common lick using D,Eb,D,C and A created by pulling on the G string. The first and last notes are the only ones articulated. Works on minor, dominant 7 or even suspended chord grooves






Lick #2
- A simple walk up from the root to the major 3rd or 10th useable on any major chord






Lick #3- This soulful minor lick has slurred notes from C to D and then a little trill on G
