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/
Now that we have concluded the 10 week intensive on Fretboard Knowledge at https://scottsbasslessons.com/ I finally got enough time and the planets aligned for a video. I was meaning to do this weeks ago, but feline challenges had made this impossible. The Anthony Wellington Video is below:
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.
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”
This is the first in a series of theory videos, here we will focus on the Major Scale, Mastering it over the Fretboard, and superficially touch on Intervals. I go over the patternistic and the formulaic approaches, and combine two separate exercises into one mega exercise to learn the major scale over the entire fretboard.Continue reading “ILMT Music Theory I: The Major Scale”
