Lesson Block #11:
Major Scales And Chord Patterns
About This Lesson Block
In this lesson block I first explain the major scale which is the mother of many other note patterns. The major scale serves as a reference point for all other patterns. Even though chord tones are a bassist's biggest concern, the numbers used to identify chord tones relate to the numbers of the major scale. After the major scale I'll show you common major-type chord patterns and some complementary major-type scale patterns.
