I love the sound of flatwounds on a P-bass. Sometimes there’s nothing better.

The focal point of this bassline is the arpeggio over a Cm9 chord, and 2 fills that use 16th (semiquaver) notes. Fill 1 can be played in one position, but fills 2a & 2b are a bit more challenging. It moves around the fretboard a bit, but with some slow practice it should be manageable.

Have fun with it, and don’t forget to download the transcription and backing track!
