Bass Fretboard Layout: Stop hunting and pecking! Learn how notes are laid out on the neck of your bass so you can play what you want when you want. Tips and shortcuts are provided to make the task quick and painless.
Bass Interval Workout: Intervals are everywhere in music; with every changing note, there’s one at work. In this lesson, you’ll learn the inner working of your bass lines – why they sound the way they do and how to vary them to suit your personal preference.
Scale Construction: If you know a bunch of scale shapes but don’t know the hows and whys of the notes they contain, you’re only getting half the picture. This lesson will introduce some must-know music theory concepts with regards to scales that will result in a deeper understanding of the bass fretboard, the notes of a bass line, and music in general.
Scale Shapes and Groove Boxes for the Bass: Bass players often hold down a steady groove beneath a riff, progression, or solo. In this lesson, you’ll learn several shapes and “groove boxes” that are ripe for the pickin’ when it come to laying it down. Each position presents its own advantage, and choosing the right one can really make the difference between a good groove and a great one.
