So, what I am going to demonstrate is sort of a user's guide to bass. It's essentially a way to get by and to be able to jam with your friends and have fun if you are the guy who get stuck, the person who get stuck playing the bass there and you don't really know what to do. I am going to show you a little trick and it is something that I use all the time because it is super fun and it sounds wicked. It's sort of like a pentatonic scale. I'd like to call it the Rock Box.
I am going to play the Rock Box in G and I am just going to do it and then I will just briefly explain what it is. It is really easy and it just goes like --. So, what that was, I was essentially working my way back up to my root note which was G, A, B flat, C, C#, D, F, G which just bring me back to my one, there my root note. You can essentially create variations on that like say, --. And by using this Rock Box technique, you can venture often find the different notes along the fretboard that correspond to the notes within your Rock Box.
So, if you are playing like your G, you will go often find your F which is right here and then you go back to G, and then not only you can find you B flat. So, it's fairly simple and it is just like a functional way to be able to play music with your friends and enjoy playing bass.
