Fun one, with sound samples!
For bass players in particular, symmetric scales are awesome to play with!
- They help understand the fretboard and how notes relate between strings
- These symmetric scales sound great
- They are symmetric, so you can move cool licks around by the interval they are symmetric in – so move up and down strings and betwen strings to your heart’s content for some fresh sounds
- They help understand how notes relate in general. The piano is a great visual aide here – look, color-coded!
