How to Use Pentatonic Inversions to Add Variety| Bass Guitar Lessons | Daric Bennett's Bass Lessons

#BASSNATION in this week’s lesson release I’ll be showing you how to play the major pentatonic scale through its inversions. Really all you need to do for this is to start the scale on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th note of the scale. This is an extremely useful exercise for fretboard navigation and just your general knowledge to jam, solo and etc! Grab your bass and dig in with me.
