This is the beginning of some advanced music theory lessons in the form of extended chord forms. I will talk about the '9', '11', and '13' chord tones or 'tensions'. This is an introduction to these concepts.
In this lesson, I will show you how to mute a note using your left hand or the hand that is on the neck of the bass. Muting notes is just as important as plucking notes, making for cleaner bass playing.
In this lesson we learn how the 7th chords relate to the modes and apply it to an exercise that covers the entire neck of the bass. Each mode has a corresponding 7th chord associated with it. The exercise is built by playing the arpeggio for each mode ascending up the neck.
In this lesson I will the ways you can create exercises playing each mode in 3rds across the cycle of fifths. By completing all of the modes this way, you will increase your dexterity and ability over the entire fretboard up to the 12th fret.
