How to practice scales
Playbassnow.com proudly presents a lesson from: Scott Devine
Add to favorites Do you know your major scales? This is a question i was asked by one of my past tutors. I obviously said yes... and i really believed i did. He then preceded to give me some major scale exercises that i'm afraid proved me otherwise!
Knowing your major scales in every part of the bass neck in all positions is invaluable and should be practiced daily. The exercises i have given you in the following tutorials will really open up the geometry of the bass neck and if practiced alongside the arpeggio exercises you will truly start to 'see' the available harmony for any chord sequence all over the bass. By practicing each different fingering of the major scale and then incorporating the continuous scale exercises you will also be practicing them modally as well.
Take your time and be patient, the continuous scale exercises are tough to start with! Remember, becoming a great musician is a lifetimes worth of study... so enjoy the ride!
