Hip Pentatonic patterns – bass lesson

Get out of the rut of the same boring pentatonic patterns and get a hipper modern sound.
Using the E minor pentatonic scale ( E G A B D )
The first pattern is:
play any note from the pentatonic scale on the G string ex E
Play the next available descending scale note on the D string ex D
Go back to the G string, skip the initial note and go to the next ascending scale note ex G
Down again to the D string, skip the D and play the next descending scale note ex A
Repeat the patter on the next pair of string sets ex DA, AE
Experiment with leaving out repeated notes, change the rhythm etc
