If you loved the bass lines class (2nd position) or the Front Porch blues harp class, then join me for a really fun class that has everything to do with 3rd position major. There is plenty of discussion out there about 3rd position minor (especially the blues scale) but what about 3rd position major? There is SO much that you can do with 3rd position major pentatonic that correlates directly to the blues.
In this class, we will cover 3rd position major and major pentatonic scales. Then we will dive into 3 fun bass lines based off of the major pentatonic scale: walking bass line, box pattern and a rumba. I’ll also cover a cool horn phrase.
All of these ideas will be discussed and presented from the perspective of 12 bar blues (I, IV and V chords). We will work out lines for each chord in the 12 bars.
