Thinking Inside the Box: Upper Structure Pentatonics

If you have been following me for a while or if you have taken any of my courses, you know that I am big on boxes. Boxes, as in box shapes, as in 0f course pentatonics. After all, pentatonics make up a huge percentage of what bassists play so knowing how to use the right ones at the right time is a must. Don’t think of them as beginner stuff or boring, all things I have heard people say. Nothing could be further from the truth! In this episode of Talking Technique I use a “Little Box/Big Box” blueprint on the top two strings only and we will use them for “upper structure” coolness, IOW, they sound super hip for solos! Just because it is fairly easy to do doesn’t mean it can’t sound awesome!

Enjoy upper structure pentatonics!
