An intuitive system to map and internalise Notes, Scales and Shapes over the entire fretboard to develop accuracy and to unlock your playing.

Levels: Beginner to Advanced. This system aims to build a strong understanding of music theory and its application on the instrument, to fill some of the gaps that may have occurred during previous studies, and to provide another point of view to look at music.
ALL THE NOTES YOU NEED ARE ALREADY UNDER YOUR FINGERS. USE THEM RESPONSIBLY.

Alex Lofoco’s Scale Colour System Vol. 1 – Scales is an extremely comprehensive and in-depth approach to virtually every scale that a bassist could be expected to know. He uses an innovative system of using different colours for different scale intervals, superimposed on fretboard diagrams, though notation is also used, and this approach may well suit those bassists who find regular theory books too alien. To master every scale demonstrated would take hundreds, if not thousands of hours’ practice, which probably matches the amount of work that Alex has put into this book! Highly recommended for those wishing to become masters of bass.
