The stretch for the out-of-position note comes right away — on the first string you play — so watch out for it. That is, on the 6th string, go back and forth several times between the 6th and 10th frets with your 1st and 4th fingers; then do the same thing on the 1st string. Your fingers will thank you for it. Practice this pattern as many times as you need to in order to make all the notes sound smooth and effortless. But with an arpeggio, you change strings more often because the spaces between the notes — which are skips instead of steps — are wider. Sometimes we tell you when a certain scale or arpeggio may favor one approach over the other, but you can play any exercise in this book using either right-hand technique. Practice the patterns in this chapter repeatedly, or until you can play them easily from memory.
Additionally, we always provide the starting left-hand finger, which appears just to the left of the first note in the standard music staff. Say, for example, you see the staff shown in Figure 1-4.

First practice the stretch in isolation, and then try the full pattern. The bass guitar is utilized in almost every single genre of music-rock, classical, jazz, metal, funk, and country just to name a few. Doing so helps you play these two distantly separated notes.

Doing so literally warms up the hands heat facilitates blood flow. We present each scale in five patterns, and we introduce the patterns in the same order for each scale. Notice that the first note in the music staff has a fingering indication the small 1 to the left of the note head. Note that in addition to including the starting finger next to the first note in the music, we also include the fingering for the out-of-position note in this case, a 4. You also see how the notes correspond to written music and tablature. Of the seven notes in this pattern, the 4th finger plays four of them, so use this exercise to concentrate on building up your 4th-finger strength.
