One cool thing about playing bass is that you can use visual aids (shapes) that can be moved all over the fretboard and thus be applied to different keys. Doing the same thing on, e.g., a saxophone is much more “messy” and a bigger pain in the behind to learn.
Still, to learn these shapes for the many different scales and modes, I was wondering whether there was a good app for that, which you could recommend?
I guess I could draw it all out on paper, but with an app it could be so much easier and more flexible to change the starting fret, limit the shape to one octave (or expand it vertically or horizontally, and depending on whether you play 4-, 5-, or -string bass), and perhaps have the software do quizzes to check your progress…
Anyway, love to hear from you who have tested some apps out there and find out which one you’d recommend!
