Electric Bass Two-Octave Scale and Arpeggio Workout

Electric Bass Two-Octave Scale and Arpeggio Workout

Hi, all,

I know its been a while – sorry I left this thing alone so long. I’ve been getting requests from students, though, so its time to resurrect the bass blog.

Here’s a two-octave scale and arpeggio workout. The fingerings are designed for solid positioning and minimal tension-inducing stretching – follow them exactly. Do them slowly for accuracy, then build speed.

For beast-mode practice: it ends with a key change; at this point, play the entire thing transposed to F major. Keep repeating, adding a flat to the key signature each time until you’ve played all twelve keys.
