The bass is fundamental to all forms of music, and being a versatile and accomplished player has never been so important. This pocket-sized guide provides you with everything you need to develop a comprehensive knowledge of the bass and the music you play on it. Starting with the basics of tuning up and finding your way around the fretboard, the book then presents a series of tutorials covering: all aspects of notation and tablature • how to form an effective practice schedule • the basics of major/minor diatonic harmony • left hand accuracy and exercises • phrasing techniques including slurs, trills, bending and vibrato • playing fingerstyle, muting and the travelling thumb • slap bass (how it works and when to use it) • playing with a pick • how to arrange and transcribe • and more. You will even find a section covering the bass itself, how to buy an instrument, and what to look for in your own price range. Soon you will find yourself accomplished and confident in a large variety of musical situations. 4″ x 5-3/4″
