What note is the bass playing? Find it on the guitar, now. Come back and tell us...

This is called ear training, TS.

Isn't it just? Noobs that come here asking questions will gain nothing if they are fucking spoon fed all the time.

Everyone should bare that in mind.

Listen to the song. It's just one note that chug's away.

I said find out what the BASS is playing... then find the same note on the guitar (assuming TS was a guitar player).

Well done. The tonic note or "home" of the song is E.

Now listen to the tonality of the song. Does it sound minor or major? Clue - improvise using E pentatonic. YOU can decide on which pentatonic to choose. Minor pentatonic or major pentatonic.

Which one sounds more correct?

Way to help someone asking a question everyone. Yay to you!

TS: mdc had it- if you want to do little jazzy fills...try using either the major or minor pentatonic
