This is the first of a series of books from Dino Monoxelos. He developed this book after years of teaching the importance of learning arpeggios and scales in all twelve keys to his students. This of course is only one facet of being a great bass player but, knowing your scales and arpeggios is one of the keys to developing new and creative bass lines. Whether you are a student of jazz, or a full on heavy metal monster, this book will help you to learn some of the arpeggios and scales that are important elements in writing great bass lines and great bass solos. This book will take you through, step by step, how to learn, and then practice your major scales and arpeggios in one octave, two octaves and how to connect them up and down your fingerboard.
