This week we’re going to look at the bass riff from Bad Guy by Billie Eilish. We’re going to look at playing the Bad Guy bass riff three different ways depending on the bass and gear you have and I’m also going to use it as a springboard for some extra study of music theory you might not expect in the shape of the harmonic minor scale!
