Just like in the previous tutorial, the backing track for these lessons is in A. This time, however, it's played with a straight feel at 110 bpm.

The bassline is really simple here. The bass player stays on the note A the entire time, and plays on the 2nd, the 6th and the 9th 16th note in each bar.

This both leaves a lot of space, and allows us to choose between almost any A-related scale if we want to practice soloing. As you'll see in the examples, we'll be mixing major and minor to give you an idea of how it can be done.

At the end of the tutorial you will find slower versions of the backing track so you can gradually build your speed up.
