eventually, sooner or later they will give
you a solo and when they say bass solo,
some people leave the room and get a drink
but we don't want that to happen.
We want them to be so
captivated by what you're playing that
they're gonna stay there and listen.
And the, the way you can catch their ear
is playing something very melodic.
And it sounds like you sorta know your way
around the changes.
So we're gonna use the 2, 5, 1 changes.
And in most times in the jazz world
they'll just say 2, 5, 1, to, to E Flat.
So you know that if they're gonna end up
on E Flat as the 1.
It's gonna start as the F.
To the B flat, to the E flat,
so be aware that it doesn't really matter
what key you're in,
it's just when they say two, five and for
instance two, five to C is gonna D G C.
So that's all it is, so you wanna learn
two, five progression as much as you
can around the neck of the instrument so
that you're just comfortable.
So we'll just let our progression play and
then I'll solo here and
I'll explain some of my choices
afterwards, okay, here we go.
you may hear some of the patterns and
shapes that we worked on earlier.
I used some of the minor seven arpeggios,
so if we were in the G minor [SOUND] and
we have our choice whether we wanna do
an ascending arpeggio or a descending so
if the chord is G minor, so here or G
we ended up on the F major 7, so you here
this pattern again,
we did that earlier and then we just
change it to a minor.
So it sounds like we pretty much,
we want it to sound like we know where
we're going and
we have a concept of what the chords are.
And again we're using the basic shapes and
arpeggios that we learned,
G-minor, for instance and I just keep
And same thing, that's the dominant 7.
And then the major 7.
So it's just combinations of ideas.
Of all the things that we've learned here
it's when you go to solo it just becomes
your own version of the melody.
But if you have those tools and you
understand what those chords are,
it's gonna make you sound like you
actually know what you're doing or
it's gonna make for a more interesting
So once again, I'm going to solo through
that pattern and see if you can recognize
some of the things that we have gone over
here we go, one more time.
So all the notes are here it's just
a matter of coming up with real cool
combination of the notes.
Again so, I'd love to hear what you'd do
with that progression soloing over it.
First walking over it, just the walking
baseline then the solo.
Have fun with it though.
