I wanna talk about how to play the E-flat minor scale on the bass guitar. We can think about E-flat minor like an E-flat major scale, and lower the 3rd note, the 6th note, and the 7th note, but a lot of that can be a lot of information, and if you're already familiar with the G-flat major scale, then you can just use those notes, starting on E-flat, to get your E-flat minor scale. So, let's review the notes from the G-flat major scale. G-flat, on the 4th fret on the D string, A flat at the 1st fret, B-flat at the 3rd fret, B on the 4th fret. D-flat on the 6th fret, E-flat, F, then, we get back to G-flat. Now, if we go back two notes, we get to the 6th note of the scale, so G-flat, F, back to E-flat. And if we use the same notes we just reviewed, we have our E-flat minor scale. E-flat, D-flat, B, B-flat, A-flat, G-flat, F, and finally, E-flat. So, here's what the E-flat minor scale sounds like.
