Tritone Bassline in Blues


In the previous lessons, we learn about how tritone works.

Now we want to create a bassline using tritone in a blues setting.

In the key of G, the 1 4 5 blues progression is G7 C7 D7.

After holding the G note for one bar, you can try the lick below.

The lick combines the notes of a G7 chord and it's tritone (Db7).

Don't worry about getting the right timing for now. Once you are familiar with the lick then work on the timing.

You can apply the same concept for the C7 and D7 chord.

Have fun.
