    Contains a long list of patterns that will help develop your agility, endurance and motor skills playing the Bass Guitar, while adding a colorful list of resources to your palette of musical tools

    After a couple of years in the making, Gustavo Zecharies’ first electronic publication is available for purchase in iBook/Apple format (Useful Melodic Patterns for Bass Guitar by Gustavo Zecharies on iBooks)

    This publication compiles an extensive list of the most relevant and practicably useful melodic patterns for modern bassists, based on different scales (major, minor, minor harmonic, octatonic/diminished, whole-scale), pentatonic (minor pentatonic and 4 types of altered pentatonic scales) and arpeggios (triad and tetrad). The patterns and the scales used in each example are thoroughly explained along with suggested exercises and in some cases examples using the 3(R-M-I) or 4-finger (R-M-I-T) plucking techniques.

    The book also takes full advantage of the features available on electronic publications, including internal bookmarks to quickly reference information, and also links to an external website where the exercises suggested for each pattern can be watched in a video, including examples about how to use them in a real application.

    As you go through the pages, you will get an increasing understanding of where any of the most useful scales, pentatonic and arpeggios are located across your instrument, a great handle on your playing technique, better endurance and tighter precision.
