Hello! I'm teaching my son bass and don't know how to play a scale that goes more than an octave. I'm a sax player who dabbled on bass a million years ago. He can do some hectic stuff already,but wants to do it seriously now. Back to basics. How do you aproach say 2½ octaves of a major scale fingering wise? Without running out of fingers! If you need to play 2½ 8ves up and down quickly,what "patterns" would you use? At what point do you sacrifice finger proximity for upwards movement,if you get my drift? Ta!
