What are they exactly and where can I find some tabs for them?
Also Search Talkbass because this has been discussed many times before, and there is a lot of great info in here.
I've been playing for 2 years, and have been avoiding scales and theory like the plague. But finally I woke up and found this link: http://www.bass-guitar-review.com/bass-lessons.php3 It doesn't have EVERY scale, but it has the basic 5. Also try www.activebass.com and click on BASICS I think it is..they have a "scale finder" where you can search for any scale in any key, in any degree
What are "bass scales"? Are they different from "musical scales"?
These are the things which cover the body of the fish - like its skin - you can make them out as the shiny things on the Bass in the following picture :
As far as I know, scales are scales. No matter what instrument you play them on.
Not to a fish they're not!!
Well the question was asked by a "bottom feeder" - which I imagine is some kind of fish!!
Do we need to move this to Off Topic?
Tarpon have shinier, more metalic-looking scales.
There's just something fishy about all these replies !!!!
Just to add to what DaVEPe wrote, you can also play major scales on one string or two strings-just follow the major scale pattern W-W-H-W-W-W-H.
For example: C major- Start on C (A string-3d fret) take a whole step to D,take another whole step to E,take a half step to F,take a whole step to G,another whole step to A,another whole step to B,and finally a half step to C- Do this all on the A string.Say the notes out loud to help you learn the fingerboard.Do this for each major scale.Learn the Key Signatures for each major scale.Finally, stay away from tabs for learning scales-you need to know the notes of the scale and where to find them,not just patterns on the neck.Rock-on.
