    I don't know a single scale and i've been playing bass for like a half-year, i've seen some people talked here about it but i still don't get it! :confused: I need extra-help :bawl:

    Get a teacher--best advice out there.

    If no teacher is available get a book.

    Go to the Forum for General Instruction and read this threadPacman's Scale Method

    Keep reading all the stickies from the General Instruction thread and you'll also be referred to many websites with good instructional content.

    Best of luck.
