Stealer’s Wheel’s Stuck in the Middle has a great bass groove. Here I go beyond just playing it by making a fun and challenging drill out of it! As deceptively simple as that bass line is, this is quite the fretboard challenge! Try it for yourself!

This is an awesome bass groove!

[🎵🎵🎵 Ari playing the groove 🎵🎵🎵 ]

What does this groove do? 1 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 6 -1- 1 – 7 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 6 – 5.

It goes back and forth between the regular major pentatonic and the dominant pentatonic [ 🎵🎵🎵 ]. You can also look at it as a dominant seven chord plus the 2 [ 🎵🎵🎵 ].

Play this groove from the song through the cycle of fifths to the left trying to stay in one area:
