This week we’re looking at one of those scales that players have often heard of but they have no idea how to integrate it in their bass lines.
The scale I’m talking about is obviously the Melodic Minor Scale. In this lesson we’ll look at it’s common use as a substitute scale over the dominant 7 chord and how we can use triads and other resources within the scale to create those funky, ‘hip’ sounds in your bass licks!!
