Bass Guitar Fills
Hello, I've been playing bass for a couple of years now and I’m trying to take it more seriously. And I really want to nail bass runs and fills.
Do you know of any site or any help you can direct my way for these two subjects? I’ve tried searching for bass runs and I can't seem to pick up any information on it. So I was hoping you may be able to help.
Bass guitar fills are made by using the notes in a scale. There are several scales that you can use, depending upon the song that you are playing.
The best thing to do is to learn these bass guitar scales and then practice making up fills (passing notes between the roots of the chords) using notes from an appropriate scale.
For more information about bass guitar scales, go here: Absolutely Free Bass Guitar Lessons and scroll down to the lessons on pentatonic minor, major, and minor scales. Then try the lessons on practicing bass guitar scales.
Once you have mastered the scales in several keys, try making up your own fills for the songs that you play.
If you have more questions, please let me know.
