    You’re amazing but too advanced for me as yet with my old fingers. PS: your left hand ring finger looks much longer than your left little finger when positioned on the keyboard and mine are not and I can’t stretch as far as you.

      Hi Robert. Thanks for your feedback. If you get the principle, you can use it over any ballad as well. (No fast-playing required).
      Well observed: My left pinky finger is not long enough for the 10ths. So: I started using my ring finger in stead.

      Robert Bernard Robert I play many things for fun with just a few fingers.. replay and I’ll give you a 3 finger lick that is very professional I do at probably 64 this .

    Hey Gjermund, thanks for another great lesson and advice at the end. I was just wondering what kind of chords you would generally play behind a bass solo. Thanks

      Hi Jake! Thanks for your feedback. The chords in the end is mostly upper-structure voicings.

    So take all minor chords as a ii from a ii-V-I and use the scale from the one to solo over. Change scales over new minor chord? Thats what I understood if you could tell me if im right. Great video, i have subscribed

      Hi, Caleb. Thanks for your comment.

      The point is that you play the scale to the 1 chord over the whole II-V-I progression. So you don’t change the scale when you play a minor chord. So Dmi = C scale, for example.
      Hope it helps
