I'm a beginner and you helped me a lot. First of all was your uncluttered style of presentation. you didn't talk for ten minutes first. Then you showed up close your fingers on each string. Then you went slowly enough for me to see what you were doing. Ill be back. Thank you.

starting on the E string from the 2nd fret which is F# and ending on the fifth fret which is A. now think of only those four chords as 1 to 4, using you middle finger you start on the 3rd fret which is G on the E string which he explains is the second fret (remember 1 to 4) then A which is the 5th fret on the E string with your pinky finger (fourth fret, 1 to 4), then B,C and D on the A string then E,F# and G on the D string. he explains it simply by saying start with your middle finger on G which he says is the second fret! so think of it as the second fret then. and if you still don't understand that then here's a bass tab on how it's played G------------------------------------------ D------------------------------2-----4-5 A------------------2--3----5------------ E---------3----5-------------------------- hopefully this helps :)

Great video content! Forgive me for butting in, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you heard about - Riddleagan Blossoming Solo Remedy (probably on Google)? It is a good exclusive guide for mastering guitar scales minus the normal expense. Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my GF  got excellent results with it.

Why are you playing so close to the frets?
Ken Z (4 months ago)
It's a cleaner sound for all types of guitars. I've seen people put capos on their necks kinda just anywhere, and it's also best to put it closer to the frets. That's where the string is being shortened, might as well make it accurate, and leave no room for error It's a good habit to have if you ever play on a guitar with low action, or a fretless

For anyone that is interested in learning how to play bass like the old greats, which is moving with the chord progression and utilizing the entire neck here is a link: https://payhip.com/b/6nR4

I need to learn the scale and play it under a minute, any tips?
Shawn Huff (2 years ago)
play the same scale over and over again until you get faster and you can play every note with out buzzing the note's clean clearly faster
Joe Byrne (3 years ago)
Thanks for this tutorial, very informative and helpful.
Mark Anthony (3 years ago)
4:15 what is that tune? is that just him messing around on the bass? funky af
netik23 (2 years ago)
Money by Pink Floyd. ( actually that's around 4:05 )
TheChinook (3 years ago)
This is the most worthless unhelpful video that exists. What a shitty teacher. How about you slow down and show the frets you are playing instead of these stupid closeup shots that make it impossible to distinguish where you even are. And actually teach for an instructional video instead of just screwing around
Martin Clayton (11 months ago)
Who's Chase Ayers? I thought the vid was quite good. Quite helpful. Whoever the fuck Chase Ayers is though, I think that cock TheChinook should take up the tambourine or cowbell with him, as per Joe Byrne's suggestion.
Joe Byrne (2 years ago)
The G scale starts with your middle finger on the E string third fret which he explains. I don't know where you get the first fret? He does a great job explaining how to play scales. I hope this helps you.
KarmaPT (2 years ago)
i know but he skips 1 
Joe Byrne (2 years ago)
Look at the dots on the fretboard this should help you with positioning first dot is third fret, second dot is fifth fret, third dot is seventh fret, fourth fret is ninth fret, and double dots are twelfth fret. Does this help you? Wherever you play your first finger is what position you're in.
KarmaPT (2 years ago)
+Joe Byrne wait isnt the first fret "1"? counting tthe fifth fret as a "4" dafuq? pls explain

Very nice lesson - many thanks!

Well Derek I have to say if you're a music teacher perhaps when you make videos showing how to play bass scales you should say which note you are playing instead of, or as well as the finger position, as I've been playing for years & I understood you but I don't think a beginner would have the foggiest idea of which string you are using without playing this vid' over & over & over again.

Martin Clayton We're all cocks i guess
Mark Anthony (3 years ago)
+Chase Ayers you've been playing piano and cello for ten years and you don't know basic scales?
TheChinook (3 years ago)
+Camam I've played cello and piano for over ten years so I'm somewhat musically inclined and because this video is doing only closeups of his damn hand I can't follow this garbage video at all.
Joseph Emmanuel (3 years ago)
thanks it is helpful to me
Kintaro Takanori (3 years ago)
i think i have to guess where his fingers press the freaking string......ya well....books here i come
Mark Anthony (3 years ago)
+Kintaro Takanori use the dots to orientate yourself
artofbreathtaking (3 years ago)
+Kintaro Takanori i agree,,, trying to show my 10 year old and can't tell the [damping] fingers from the [playing].. if he called out the what finger on each strike, it would have been easier
Cade Miller (3 years ago)
+Kintaro Takanori just watch it again if you need to, the video should be enough to see what notes hes playing
Steve Bolton (4 years ago)
Great lesson, thanks Derek. You refer to another lesson where you discuss damping techniques. Is that anywhere online? I can't seem to find it, a very few of the other teachers online talk about damping. At least I get the feeling your explanation will be clearer than theirs ;) Thanks again!!

Most helpful beginner video I've found on youtube ever, nice ones man thanks a lot
Mark Bentley (5 years ago)
Great lesson! :) thanks man
Ken14Z (6 years ago)
I'm totally new to bass. I'm learning from scratch. I had picked up tabs and learned songs... and that's cool... but it gives me very little foundation to work off of. So I'm looking up scales and stuff, and this is definitely a great video for beginners! Out of all the videos I've seen this will be the best and easiest one for me to watch to reference the scales. Thank you for your simplicity and directness!
