Below the examples included on the Useful Melodic Patterns for Bass Guitar book, for pattern number 01.

Here is the "easy" example, trying the pattern over the E Major scale on its first position, starting at the 11th fret (D#) on the E string. 

Below, a video playing pattern 1, E major scale, fret 11

Now the advanced example, trying the pattern over the B minor harmonic scale, starting at the 14th fret (F) on the E string. 

Further below, a video playing pattern 1, F minor harmonic scale, fret 13

And here a quick example about how to use our pattern number number 1 on a chord sequence that goes: E major (I), C# minor (VI), B13 (V), F# minor 7 (II). Playing with the E major / C# minor scale.
