download the pdf here (free!): One String Scales For Bass PDF

It’s a common problem after you learn some basic one octave scale shapes to feel “stuck” on the fingerboard. You might be able to improvise within your safe little boxes, but when you try to move outside of them it’s easy to get lost.

One string scales are here to save the day! This is a simple way to use the scale knowledge you already have to get yourself comfortable with shifting up and down the bass neck so that you can play more freely and explore the instrument more comfortably. Have fun!
