Pentatonic scales are, for the Bass Guitar, as the alphabet is for language. An essential base for everything else, this method can be seen as a passport to the four stringed instrument. This method charts the essential minor pentatonic scale, the major pentatonic, as well as other five-note scales, called hybrid pentatonics.
However, this method is not merely a boring list of scales, the theory and techniques that are discussed are included as part of numerous musical examples of grooves and solos. The accompanying MP3 CD allows you to listen to all the technical and musical examples, helping you to clarify difficulties of interpretation. Including around 7 hours of music in total, the CD is invaluable.
