Here’s a bass lesson on Crossfire by Stevie Ray Vaughan (bass tab here)
I use this song as an example of the dominant 7th scale being used as a bass line in my lesson on Scales – The Dominant 7th. The bassists is playing the Eb dominant 7th scale throughout:
Note: the bass is tuned down a half-step (Eb, Ab, Db, Gb).
- Root – Eb
- 3rd – G
- 5th – Bb
- Flat 7th – Db
