The Bass Players Guide to Scales and Modes by Stuart Clayton

The Bass Players Guide to Scales and Modes by Stuart Clayton — This is one of the newest made available by Stuart Clayton and arrived to us just couple weeks ago. Every title we’ve seen by Stuart is 1st class, so we were excited to see what he had in store here. In classic Stuart Clayton form, this title is no different – it delivers. It is well laid out, easy to follow and helps whether you are learning this for the first time, or using this as a reference to revisit an earlier area of study.

The Bass Players Guide to Scales and Modes is a complete reference manual featuring all of the scales, modes and arpeggios used by the modern bass guitarist. The construction of each scale and mode is covered in detail and the reader is encouraged to learn the content of the scale rather than the prescribed fretboard patterns found in other books. ‘Real world’ bass grooves clearly demonstrate the sound and use of each scale. Audio files for these exercises are available as a free download from this site. This book is for bass players of all levels. 142 pages. Written in Standard Notation and TAB.
