Finally got around to doing a big video devoted to playing scales over the entire fretboard and using what I've christened the Tri Shape System. I've mentioned it a few times in threads when discussing scales and I always find it hard to describe so this vid will hopefully clear things up. If anyone has another name for this way of looking at scales positions then let me know. I gave it the name Tri Shape obviously because of the 3 patterns for any one area. It's a fairly long vid but covers most of what you need to know in terms of shapes around the fingerboard. http://www.talkingbass.net/practice-...-shape-system/
The other vid I've released is a guide to scale practice based on the Study Book Of Scales. The Tri shape system is mentioned along with some examples of practice exercises like scale fragements/sequences and position shifts. It's a bit of an ad for the book but there's enough practice material to probably warrant putting it out there. http://www.talkingbass.net/great-sca...y-book-scales/
Hope the vids are useful. I've been busting my ass editing them for the past few days at the same time as preparing for Christmas.
Merry Christmas everyone!
