Anyone interested in learning to play electric bass can pick up this book and get started right away. This well-paced, comprehensive method covers everything from basic to advanced techniques. Beginning concepts include the basics of the instrument, reading music, and building bass lines using scales, modes, and chord progressions. For the intermediate player, it takes you further into using scales, techniques such as slap & pop, string muting, walking bass lines, modes, tetrachords, passing tones, and varying rhythms. The book concludes with ideas designed to guide you into high-level bass playing, such as rhythm changes, tritone substitution, odd time signatures, chord playing, a study of Latin grooves, reggae, ska, and advanced funk bass lines. Whether you are starting to learn the bass or are an advanced player looking to give your playing more nuance, Electric Bass Method Complete is all you will ever need. An MP3 CD demonstrating examples in the book is included.
