“The coolest bass lick ever”…

That’s a big statement, right?

So let me give you the back story.

Last week I published a short video on YouTube of me jamming along with a groove (using the drum machine we’re about to launch inside ScottsBassLessons for our members)…

And in that video I played a short little lick, and thought nothing else of it.

… Until my inbox was FILLED with emails asking about that lick, lol

Seriously. I’ve been publishing videos on YouTube for 7 years – and this one lick is the one I’ve been asked about the most.

Obviously, I knew I needed to film a quick lesson for you so you can get this lick into your own toolkit…

So… it’s done.

In this lesson you’re going to hear the lick, and then I’m going to break it down for you bit by bit so you can not only get this lick into your own vocabulary, but also understand why it works from a theoretical standpoint.

Ready! Let’s do this.

As always, see you in the shed…

Scott 🙂


Right now over 10,000 bass players are enrolled in the Academy here at Scott’s Bass Lessons and are making a real difference to their playing… if you’re really serious about getting your bass playing together, click here to find out more and grab your 14 day free trial:

  1. Cool lick, but that stack pot / matching headstock, tho.

  2. Nice lick, puts me in mind of the main riff of mellowship slinky in b major off Blood Sugar Sex Magik.

  3. I'm a big fan of your channel but why aren't you having dinner with your family? Are you really that busy? One day you'll wish you spent more time with them than your youtube "fans"

  4. Very cool lick indeed, i might have to "steal" that one 😀

  5. dann cyril crespo

    very cool..

  6. Great information, as always!

  7. Cool lick, Scott, but I feel like you just killed the frog.

  8. Big fan of this channel and all these videos but when I'm on the go and watching it's a bit rough hearing everything that's going on. Maybe a diffirent mic set up ?

  9. Your bass is never LOUD ENOUGH! Turn it up!!! Oh, and just so you know, when you say "hacker" in the US, it's not a good thing. 😉

  10. Who thumbs down this???
    Salty haters…that's who lol

  11. Practical and usefull. I really like the sounds of the wider intervals and use them whenever they work. Thank you for another nice installment!

  12. #9 is cool, isn't it?! Nice sounding little lick!

  13. Mauricio Néstor Guzmán Zenteno

    I was waiting for the licc

  14. Hy Scott, i hope it's ok for you when i have a question about another cool lick.Joe Dart plays in this link at 1.05 a very cool lick. you can show us how he makes this thing ?

  15. Paul Michael Shields

    As always wishing Scott/his family & all you bassists worldwide all the best over the weekend…

    Great video as always Scott & it's great to see how far Scott Devine's Bass Academy has come along these last few year's…

  16. Ricardo Hernandez

    i know scott, this a old question for you, but, why you use a glove to play?

  17. More J videos Scott!

  18. Which model is the Barefaced cabinet behind you ? Is it the 10" or the 12" ? Sounds great… Thanks for sharing your licks.

  19. Mark Doney-Mccloud

    I am loving that lick fella, got it down!| I will be searching out more, many thanks. I produce my own stuff from home when I get a chance and i'm not working my batty off to get bills pauid and new gear for my home studio.
