A beginner bassist's foray into the unknown

Two-Octave Major Scale Pattern 2

So, continuing from my post from yesterday, here’s another way to play the Major Scale across two octaves on a 4-string bass:

2-Octave Major Scale 2 (fingering)

2-Octave Major Scale 2 (degrees)

Just like before, the 1st image shows a possible fingering and the 2nd shows the scale degrees up until the octave, then continues as if it were a new scale, because I still think in terms of 7 scale degrees + octave. I haven’t gotten used to 9ths, 11th, etc.

I kind of like this pattern because there isn’t much shifting until the last 3 notes, and I really just lead with my pinky finger for those.
