Fingering Mastery - Scales & Modes for the Bass Fingerboard Paperback – May 12, 2012
From the Inside Flap
The study begins with the 7-note scales: first the Ionian and its modes, then the harmonic minor, followed by the jazz minor and Harmonic Major - displayed in cohesive full-color patterns which promote both memorization and ease of fingering.
Next, the Chromatic Cube section revisits the Ionian & jazz minor sets, and introduces the Wholetone scale, the diminisheds, and Bebop Major set fingerings - all examined in great detail.
And finally, an investigation into the pentatonics leads to the inclusion of the octatonic Bebop Dominant set.
