Watch the Church in the House online guitar lesson by David Santos from 50 Bass Grooves You MUST Know

This line utilizes a major pentatonic pickup on the "and of 4". It is a two measure phrase performed in staccato 8th notes. The phrase consists of a funky trill or hammer-on from the minor third to the major third on the G string in measure one. A low minor third on the E string is used in measure two as an answer to the high trill of measure one. Home base for this line is the F sharp on the D string 4th fret. The lower F sharp on the E string is used as well in measure two of this two bar phrase, primarily to set up the low A note on the E string (the minor third) which is an answer in this call and response dialogue between the high trill of the minor to major trill on the G string and the non-trilled lower minor third of measure two on the E string.
