Minor Blues 12/8 - Bass Line #25 is a video guitar lesson presented by David Santos and is sourced from 50 Bass Grooves You MUST Know.


This is a minor blues in 12/8. It's played in a triplet feel with a sad feeling. Minor blues songs are very dark harmonically and melodically. There are many inside rhythms and subdivisions to grasp and understand and use. Triplets can yield many different related rhythms to take advantage of when moving around in the pocket.
