About this app

Learn to play any scale over the complete fretboard using this comprehensive bass guitar app.

The exclusive Talkingbass Scale Generator has been developed to provide a simple method for visualising any scale in all positions of the fretboard.

Simply specify the root note and the scale in the selection menu and choose from a variety of different positions/fingerings and the generator will display the scale on a graphical fretboard and tab/sheet music. Press play and you'll hear the scale played along with a click at the specified tempo.

- Huge database of scales including Major, All Minors, Pentatonics, Major & Minor Modes, multiple exotic/synthetic scales

Just bought this app as a new bass player. I also can't see all the frets in tab mode and the screen doesn't move so I have to manually move the screen.. which defeats the point. Will this be fixed as this is the most useful aspect of the app for me.

Great scale practice tool and better than the many free options I've tried. It's really useful to have the choice of which finger to start a scale therefore have a choice of positions on the neck to play in. Many apps and videos make promises about learning the notes on the neck but this is better than many I've tried.

When you look at a scale in standard notation the stave has six lines instead of five. Strangest mistake I have ever seen in a music app ... I see it is being fixed (14 May 22). Will likely try purchasing the app again when it is ready.
