Bass Scales Section
Scales are the building blocks of bass lines and bass solos. The scales section contains a large collection of common and exotic scales. Each scale is presented in diagram form, and shown in multiple positions. This allows you to play the scale anywhere on the bass neck.
Scale spellings and information about each scale are also provided.
Scales are also shown in tab and notation in one octave with a tonic note of C. This allows you to hear the sound of each scale, and to compare it with the diagrams and scale spellings.
Bass Chords Section
Bass chords add another sound to your playing. The chord shapes can also be used to create single note bass lines. The bass chord section of the book is in two sections: a quick reference section, for finding the chord you need quickly and easily; and a movable chords section, for finding alternative ways to play the chord.
In this section you can find out how to play a number of arpeggio types on your bass. Arpeggios are a very useful tool for creating effective bass lines, and can also be used in improvisation.
All of the scales, chords and arpeggios are presented in diagram form, so there’s no need to read music. Suitable for bassists of all abilities. Bass Scales, Chords & Arpeggios gives you the information you need to make your playing stand out from the crowd.
“The best scales book I have come across, fantastic and would be cheap at twice the price!”
