Product Description

Scales are the foundation of music! They can be found in every known culture. In all styles of modern music, scales are the heartbeat, breath and soul of the solos, riffs and bass lines!

This course has every bass guitar scale you ve ever wanted to learn! Presented in a simple root to octave format, starting with basic scales such as major, minor, pentatonic and blues. Next learn the patterns spanning all musical styles and cultures with exotic scales like the Balinese, Hirojoshi and Kumoi. There are over 50 scales for you to use to spice up your bass playing!

Each scale is presented with a video demonstration at a slow and fast tempo. The bottom half of the screen gives you the option of using sheet music in the form of note charts, traditional notation or tablature (TAB).

As a bonus, you will learn tips for changing musical keys. Octaves are introduced to help you to navigate your fretboard. This is further enhanced by showing you how to extend each scale higher and lower in pitch. Throughout this video course you will find examples for using scales and modes musically.

About the Actor

Musician, Educator and Author Mark John Sternal began teaching his trademark method to private guitar students in 1991. He was only 17, with one year left of High School before he would attend Richard Daley College in Chicago. By 1994 Mark relocated to Florida, and with him came the manuscript of his first book. The piece was titled Total Scales Techniques and Applications, which Mark sold to his private students. One afternoon a student's friend came into the music store where Mark was teaching. He explained that he had seen the manuscript and wanted to purchase one for himself. This transaction sparked the idea to put the manuscript up for sale online. The manuscript sold so well that Mark was able to quit his 'other job' as a student loan consultant, and pursue music full time. By 2002, fueled by user feedback and testimonials, Mark's growing number of music instruction titles awarded him national recognition. In 2004 his proven methods became available to the retail music industry. For most of 2006 through 2008, MJS held the #1 best selling music instruction slot at some of the largest music and book stores in the United States. In March 2008 MJS Music & Entertainment introduces Mark's GUITAR DVD #1 Beginner Basics & Beyond. October 2008 introduced the BASS GUITAR DVD #1 Beginner Basics & Beyond.

I felt it didn't spend time explaining in detail.

This covers the basic yet very important part of becoming a 360 bassist.

This is the best beginner scale instruction dvd that i've come across. the instructor does a wonderful job of simplifying the content. this should go under - so easy even a baby can do it.

As a beginner bassist I'm always looking for the most clear and precise instruction. This DVD couldn't get any easier! Step by step in slow and clear direction and then speed-ed up to get the full effect. This covers the basic yet very important part of becoming a 360 bassist. Great DVD to have in your repertoire of learning and practice material.

This dvd had many different scale types shown relatively rapidly. I felt it didn't spend time explaining in detail. It is great as an overview of the various types of scales, but lacks if you are looking, as I was, as a beginner.

I think the bass, the instrument, should stand out more. During a lesson the instructor talks incessantly- over each note played. I would like to just hear the note. The talk could come before or after a run, not during. Picky, picky, picky.

The DVD moves way too slow. After a few tries, I walked away.
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who is starting to play the bass.
