This revolutionary book is an intensive study guide for those who wish to further their understanding of the essential violin scale fingerings in an intelligent and orderly manner.

For all four-string fretless instruments tuned to fifths: violin, viola, cello, etc.

All the western scales/modes are mapped out on the fingerboard in easy-to-remember patterns that are perfectly logical, and - most importantly - 100% practical for ease of execution in performance. These are shown in various configurations designed to highlight the intervallic relationships and repetition of fragments between groups of strings.

The descriptive use of color throughout enables the player to most clearly and graphically envision the differences and similarities between related scales and sections of scales.

The exposition of 5th-tuned 4-string fingerboard systems presented in this book graphically demonstrates how simple the mastery of scales can be via the internalization of just a few basic finger positions and their repeating combinations.

From the Back Cover:

Fingering Mastery
scales and modes for the violin fingerboard

2012 © J.Brent & S.Barkley

The fingerings for these scales on the violin fingerboard are shown in various configurations designed to highlight the intervallic relationships and repetition of fragments between groups of strings.

Included:

  • Ionian set (Lydian, etc)
  • Harmonic minor set (Phrygian Dominant, etc)
  • Jazz minor set (Lydian Dominant, etc)
  • Harmonic Major set (superphrygian, etc)
  • Wholetone scale
  • Diminished scales (hW / Wh)
  • Bebop Major set (Dorian Blues, etc)
  • Bebop Dominant set (Mixodorian, etc)
  • Pentatonic scales: Minor and Major

From the Inside Flap:

The study begins with the 7-note scales: first the Ionian and its modes, then the harmonic minor, followed by the jazz minor and Harmonic Major - displayed in cohesive full-color patterns which promote both memorization and ease of fingering.

Next, the Chromatic Cube section revisits the Ionian & jazz minor sets, and introduces the Wholetone scale, the diminisheds, and Bebop Major set fingerings - all examined in great detail.

And finally, an investigation into the pentatonics leads to the inclusion of the octatonic Bebop Dominant set.
