This bass lesson covers how to play two octave scales on the bass guitar.

When we learn scales on bass we often stick to learning the standard one octave root to octave shapes. But what if you need to learn a 2 octave scale? In this lesson from you’ll learn a two octave pattern based on the original one octave shape you already know so you can simply create other 2 octave scales on the fly without having to worry about memorising more patterns

    Amazing lesson. I’m just getting back into bass again after a 28 year break so finding your site on the web was a revelation. I thought I was ok but these lessons are really teaching the stuff I need to know to get back up there again. Thanks.

    Always enlightening! I’m just breaking into solo riffing up and down the neck with modes. Two octave scales is another route to open up the neck.

    Another pukka lesson Mark, cheers for this. I will be combining it along with scale spelling so I can work on a more rounded and fuller understanding of where the notes actually are on the neck, and then finding their interconnections. it is truly eye-opening for me.

    Always great watching your lessons. You break it down perfectly. The rest is up to you to practice slowly and build up speed. Thanks.
