Bass Scales - Riff Ninja Academy

Bass Scales

Scales are incredibly important for a bass player to understand – we just can’t drive that home too many times! On the bass, everything comes down to the scale, because we’re not playing chords (usually!) like guitar players often do. That leaves the scale.

The more scales you know, and the better you know them, the more options you’ll have at your disposal. Learning how the various patterns interconnect, and how you can modify them will truly put you in command of your bass’ fretboard.
