Dawn Patrol – Megadeth (Bass Play Through)

This is actually a very simple and fun song to play on bass. Dave Ellefson did a great job of creating a cool bassline utilizing one scale. Rhythm really is your best friend when it comes to creating simple, yet complex sounding basslines.

Dawn Patrol comes off of probably the most popular Megadeth album ‘Rust In Peace.’

We are utilizing the d♭ minor scale here at a 75 BPM.

Throughout this song our first measure remains the same with the second measure changing slightly.

Verse 1

Verse 2

Verse 3

Hope you enjoy!
