Of interest to bass nerds only:
I just put up scale sheets for all three octave major scales. These sheets have no fingerings at all, allowing for teachers and students to add their own fingerings as they see fit. I have had several requests for this kind of scale sheet, so hopefully people will find them helpful.
Here are the scales sheets I have available so far. You can find these and other downloadable files on my downloads page.
My fingerings (some errors)
John Floeter’s fingerings (John is the bass instructor at Northern Illinois University and a member of the Grant Park Symphony Orchestra)
John’s one octave major and minor scales with fingerings (PDF)
John’s two octave major and minor scales with fingerings (PDF)
Here are fingering charts for one and two octave scales with no fingerings at all. That way, you can add your own without a lot of unnecessary scribbling.
Three Octave Scales
If you have any scale sheets or technique sheets of your own that you would like to make available through this blog, just e-mail me them at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will include them on my downloads page.
