Electric Bass Warm Up Exercise
This free lesson will teach you the two most important chords in each key. We break every major key down to it's I and V chord and play them consecutively following the cycle of fifths. This is a great exercise for learning basic harmony (I and V chords in every key), finding notes on the fingerboard, voice leading between V to I progressions, improving technique through musical content and ear trining.
