Diatonic Major and Minor Scales for Electric Bass

Customer Rating:   3 Reviews Write a Review


Diatonic Major and Minor Scales for Electric Bass edited by Damon Mazzocco. For electric bass. Instructional and Scales. Instructional book. 12 pages. Published by Jamey Aebersold Jazz (JA.DMMB).

ISBN 978-1-56224-267-1. Instructional and Scales.

The Late guitarist Adres Segovia put the practice of scales into perspective: "The student who wishes to acquire a firm technique ..... should never neglect the patient study of scales. Many hours of frequently futile exercises can be condensed into one hour of scales."Although the study of scales is one important element of becoming a great bassist, mastering scales is the primary means to developing new and creative bass playing. The importance of this book can not be overstated.These major and minor scales make frequent use of the shift finger for easy and rapid changes. They also utilize the notes of the upper register to enable each student to learn the entire fretboard. These scales develop the full use of the thumb and three fingers of the right hand. With this fingerstyle approach, you will acquire a more proficient and versatile technique. This book also includes the complete Etude Number 1 in C Major by the great guitarist Matteo Carcassi, which develops the p-i-m-a technique faster and more efficiently than other exercises. Remarkable and easily playable, this classic gem utilizes the scale techniques learned in this book and is suitable for solo performance.

    I've seen as much true garbage out there as anyone. This is just terrific. It is concise, easy to understand and destined to become the "bible" of modern guitar scales.
