The comprehensive method book for the modern electric bassist including notation and tablature. Today, a good bass player has to be able to play in a wide variety of styles. You have to be able to solo as well as provide a solid groove and the necessary harmonic foundation of a song. This book helps you with more than 150 licks and basic grooves for rock, blues, reggae, funk, jazz, and other styles plus exercises for timing, tapping, slap and other techniques. Learning to play in different positions will help you feel at home on the bass. In addition, a thorough presentation of music theory throughout the text will give you the knowledge you need to branch out into composing, arranging, or producing, or to become a more capable sideman or studio musician. All of the exercises have been recorded on the split-track CD without repeats. Turn the left channel all the way down, and you can practice with just drums, or leave it up to hear the bass part as well. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced player looking to improve, this method book will put you on the path to becoming a better bass player.
