@JoshFossgreen Not sure where to post this (Lessons or YouTube), and my apologies if my questions have been covered elsewhere.
I’m referring to the Lessons (under module 8 lesson 5), and in your YouTube videos “Simple Blues Groove”, and “Beginner’s Funk Bass Made Simple”.
The Funk Box shape could be described as “ROOT, fifth, flat seventh, and octave (of the ROOT)”
Module 8 lesson 5 could be described as “ROOT, 3rd, 5th, 3rd”
Both the above are referring to a major scale, D major and Eb major respectively.
But in your Simple Blues Groove video, you say that it can be played in either major or minor scales because there is “no 3rd”. So, how could it be described then? I guess it doesn’t fit in any pattern? “ROOT, something, something, ROOT” ??
I’ve never had ANY kind of music theory until I started to take your lessons. Am I just overthinking all this, or did I miss something?
Both the 12-bar blues progressions have the same three roots (E, A, B) and (Eb,Ab,Bb) and use the same progression pattern and now I understand that, at least
Thanks very much and all best, Joe
