Ending On A Bass Note

First let me show you a cool concept that has to do with bass notes.

Remember how we found the root notes of the open chords, when we were working on the root/chord strumming? For example our A minor chord has the root bass note on the open A string. Now the concept is to play your open position scale pattern and end on this note.

You could use a smaller part of it, but for simplicity's sake, let's use the whole pattern. Then once we get to the open A string, we hit that and follow it with the full chord.

Let's try another one. How about the D minor chord that of course has the root bass note on the open D string.
