Warming up is an integral part of any activity, check out and download this PDF to explore some warm up routines!!!
In this module I am displaying the Chord Inversions for the 7th Chords as well as other Chord Types. The finger placements are the ones I use and if you have a system that works better for you I am not suggesting you change.
In this video I talk about how differing systems for fretboard organization can improve our fluency with an instrument! Here I compare the SBL 3 area system for fretboard organization with the Ariane Cap Pattern System. Though, I feel that these are complementary rather than competing systems for fretboard organization!SBL Linkhttps://scottsbasslessons.com/Ari’s Bass Bloghttps://arisbassblog.com/
My job here is to pass on information and stand as a guide while the student finds their voice and best method of expression!
Week 6 was about Pentatonics so I made a little video about some insights in exploring pentatonics! This is a video for Scottsbasslessons.com Fretboard Challenge! I made a handout to illustrate what I am discussing in the video, if it is needed.
This is a handout of what went into the “Frankenstein Exercise” and again this is still something I am actively working on and improving. I tried to keep everything in the Key of C to have as few accidentals as possible, but once you get this under your fingers I implore you to move onContinue reading “Building a Frankenstein Exercise”

Pushing deeper into the Fretboard Challenge at SBL, I am pushing deeper into Week 2 content: Continuous Triad exercises over three partitioned areas. However the video is from the Minor leg of this exercise, not the Augmented and Diminished variants, but I did provide PDF Files.
Week 2 of the Challenge is all about triads over the fretboard, the PDF files are just the ascending but you should do them in reverse as well, ascending and descending. Exercise 1: Triads Alone Exercise 2: All Triad Notes from Top to Bottom Exercise 3: Continuous Triads
I constructed some PDF Files to outline the practice exercises for the fretboard challenge. I am directing SBL members here for the sake of not bogging down their site with countless PDF Files. This is the first week exercise, at the first layer, the further layers are just removing beats so from 4 to 2Continue reading “SBL’s Fretboard Challenge Week 1”
