Paragraph summary of what was covered in class
In class we did a review of week 3. We worked on tuning using harmonics, playing a 2 octave g minor scale, the indian 4 note exercise, recognizing shapes of TRIADS in the fingerboard, reviewing our walking bass lines from the previous week, and how to use ½ step passing notes in a walking bass line.
Assignment for next week
Fill out the 2nd half of the walking bass line worksheet, using a ½ step passing tone the beat before a chord change (usually beat 4) to approach any chord tone in the coming chord.
