    Musicality is a practicable skill/disclipine/art

    Not sure that there's ever been a player that's truly had no knowledge of musical terms or theory.

    IMHO, practicing scales is a great way to learn how to take what you're hearing in your head and connect it with where your fingers go on the instrument. It's ear training, muscle memory, and fretboard knowledge, all rolled into a single exercise.

    Was that on the old site?

    Yeah, it was on the old site. The short version of it is this: funk music has three common bass moves hiding inside the dominant diminished scale: the minor third to the major third, the augmented fourth to the perfect fifth, and the major sixth to the minor seventh.
