[SOUND] Open E.
[SOUND] G-sharp four.
[SOUND] B with the first finger.
Let's try that again.
[SOUND] Make sure you have your arm in a
good position to come around the bass, so
that your G-sharp doesn't
wind up being flat,
because you've got your arm laying down.
[SOUND] Open E, G-sharp,
B [SOUND] and G-sharp, B, E.
That's the first inversion, G-sharp at
the fourth finger, one on B, one on E.
And then we'll switch
to second finger on B,
[SOUND] second finger on E and then
G-sharp [SOUND] with the first finger.
And that's the second version,
so let's start from the bottom.
It's E, G-sharp, B, G-sharp,
B, E and then B, E, G-sharp.
If you want,
you can also finger it like this.
[SOUND] Open E, G-sharp, B, G sharp, B,
E and then stay right here and
play one on B, one on E,
[SOUND] but then you have to shift for
It's good to kind of practice both ways,
so that you get the idea of playing
in the bottom and also sometimes moving
up a little bit up the D string.
It's a different sound.
[SOUND] That's pretty clear.
Sometimes, if you're playing quickly,
you might want to use this fingering.
[SOUND] But if you're playing
a lyrical melody, you might wanna go.
Now if you see me wiggling,
my hand I'm gonna explain
that a little later.
That's called vibrato and
that's an expressive tool on the bass and
I'm gonna tell you how to
do that a little later.
Now I'd like to finish up with
you the basic arpeggio, so.
