The late guitarist Andres Segovia put the practice of scales into perspective: "The student who wishes to acquire a firm technique ..... should never neglect the patient study of scales. Many hours of frequently futile exercises can be condensed into one hour of scales." Although the study of scales is one important element of becoming a great bassist, mastering scales is the primary means to developing new and creative bass playing. The importance of this book can not be overstated.

These major and minor scales make frequent use of the shift finger for easy and rapid changes. They also utilize the notes of the upper register to enable each student to learn the entire fretboard. These scales develop the full use of the thumb and three fingers of the right hand. With this fingerstyle approach, you will acquire a more proficient and versatile technique.

This book also includes the complete Etude Number 1 in C Major by the great guitarist Matteo Carcassi, which develops the p-i-m-a technique faster and more efficiently than other exercises. Remarkable and easily playable, this classic gem utilizes the scale techniques learned in this book and is suitable for solo performance.

I tell my students that "Fewer choices ensures a greater likely-hood of success". This book is proof! In a world gone nuts trying to invent something "new", people are finally "getting it". These are thorough,intelligent and easy to understand for ANY PLAYER. The Carcassi Etude No. 1 is the ULTIMATE "walking bass" study. Give me a month and I coudn't think of enough positive things to say about this or the "Classic Gems For Electric Bass".

I would buy this book again and again!


The Carcassi Etude alone makes this book worth it! It's no wonder these are calles the "Segovia Scales" for electric bass.
