Excerpt:
In this lesson, I'll show you the bass runs you can use in the key of D. Bass runs serve to create a little extra movement and interest in the guitar part when playing Stringband music.

A Bass Run is a short series of notes that lead you from one chord to the next.

From D to G, the Bass Run notes are: E and F#, played on the 6th string. (6th string open, 6th string 2nd fret).

From G back to D, the Bass Run notes are: A and B (open 5th string, 5th string 2nd fret).

From D to A, the Bass Run notes are: F# (4th string, 4th fret) and E (4th string, 2nd fret).

From A back to D, You simply retrace your steps. The Bass Run notes are: E and F# (4th string 2nd fret, 4th string 4th fret).
