- All right, and now we're going to check out the key of C.…So this doesn't have any sharps or flats…which I'm sure you'll appreciate.…Now the other thing is, it moves between…two different positions,…so you're going to shift up with your index finger…when we get to the first string.…So check out this scale,…which just goes up and then back down.…Here we go.…(drumsticks clicking)…(funky C scale)…All right, so this next example…is also in the key of C, but it has some leaps…so you can practice jumping around from different strings,…up to the higher scales that descend.…
Let's check it out.…(drumsticks clicking)…(funky bass song)…All right, you guys are doing great.…
Let's move on now to bass line for a rocker.…And this will allow you to kind of move between…your index finger and your middle finger,…jumping strings in different ways.…Check this one out.…(drumsticks clicking)…(funky bass riff)…
