FIRST LESSONS - BASS

No reviews

First Lessons Bass is intended to introduce beginning students to the fundamental concepts of playing the electric bass. The material covered in this book is approximately the material covered in the first 8 lessons of private bass instruction. This book makes use of the '3-finger' left hand position commonly found in double bass technique. The emphasis on left hand technique allows the student to develop a consistent fingering approach to the fingerboard, reduces unnecessary strain on the left hand, and makes the bass more accessible to younger students or students with small hands. After the left hand technique has been established, the book introduces the student to important elements of bass line construction including blues patterns, the root-fifth relationship, and common rhythmic patterns. Written in standard notation only (no TAB). Includes audio CD. 32 pages.

No reviews

The exercises presented here are the same that great teachers and world-class music schools give to their advanced students. This is the first book to present them formally, and is a milestone of its kind. This book contains hard-core information and exercises that are plainly difficult; only dedicated musicians need apply. But if you are serious about your instrument, learning how to read on it, and learning where the notes are without looking at it, you've come to the right place. This book works in tandem with MIDI examples, which will greatly aid in the absorption of information and the building of skill. Exercises for each string are presented in all keys. The book culminates in a final section which integrates playing on all six strings. Written in standard notation (no TAB). 124 pages.
