Sample 4 Scott Hubbell has written the definitive book on extended and diagonal fingerings. If you are serious about being a player then the concepts presented here are a must. This book will change the way you look at your bass. The change will come quickly, and it will be noticeable. The concepts in this book will challenge the way you have approached the bass and open up new options for everything that you play. I remember the day in that I discovered the concept of extended and diagonal fingerings.
I could not see it. I remember it clearly because from that moment on, my playing was forever changed. For the first time the fretboard opened up to me. As I experimented with the concept, new and exciting musical ideas began to surface. My self-imposed limitations began to disappear. I became less of a bass player and more of a musician. As I took the techniques past scales and modes and into arpeggios, I found it easy to reach the upper chord extensions. My playing became more sophisticated, more melodic, and more musical.
Before I found extended and diagonal fingerings, I approached the bass vertically. I stayed in one position, and I played one finger per fret. I based my lines off of the major scale or blues scale. My lines were old and predictable. I knew certain scales and modes in certain positions on the neck. The neck was divided up into areas that were reserved for a particular key, lick, or pattern.
There was not the fluidity of a piano or a saxophone. Extended and diagonal fingering changed all that. Many of the great players use it. Some books have hinted at it.
Scott Hubbell has defined it. Now you can own it. His beautiful arrangements and stellar playing can be heard on his debut release, Big Droppins.
