Join Jared Meeker for an in-depth discussion in this video The natural minor scale, part of Bass: Teach Yourself.
- All right, moving on to the natural minor scale. So far, we've learned eight notes, and if you play these together, then they actually form the A natural minor scale, which can also be called A Aeolian. A scale is a very important musical bloc for you to learn. There are many kinds of scales, and they sound really cool, but a scale is just an arrangement of notes played in order. So, let's try playing this together.
Here we go, the A natural minor scale. (upbeat bass music) Okay, you guys are doing great. Let's move on to the next example, which is a little bit longer, and it's called Rockin' a la Mode. Here we go. (mellow jazz music)
