BACK COVER
This book is a high potency method targeted at any bass guitarist who is seeking to become a professional musician and wishes to practice the techniques used by world class players. The benefits of this method are:
- You will learn the location of every note on every string.
- You will learn to feel where the notes are on the neck without looking.
- You will learn to read music on the bass guitar.
- You will learn to quickly and easily read ledger line notes.

This unique method works on all four of the above disciplines at once. Each exercise concentrates the student’s attention on one string at a time. This allows a familiarity to form between the written pitch and where it can be found on the bass guitar, in addition to improving one’s “feel” for jumping linearly across the bass guitar neck. Along the way you learn how to read music and acquire a formidable control over the instrument. This book also has accompanying audio files which can be downloaded for free from the internet at http://www.muse-eek.com. These files allow the student to hear each exercise thus informing them when they are playing the correct note. Muse Eek Publishing Company also hosts two on-line resources in conjunction with this book. A “Frequently Asked Questions” page (FAQ) is available where students can ask the author questions that may arise as they work. There is also a free “member’s section” where book owners can download other files specific to this book and many other help files to further their music education. Unlike traditional situations where the reader is left on their own after purchase of a text, Muse-Eek Publishing seeks to keep the reader/student engaged and interactive with the author. With each book you are beginning a relationship in which help and direction are always available to make sure you are learning correctly.

This book is a required text for beginning bass guitarists at New York University and Princeton University and is recommended for beginning to intermediate bass guitar students ages 13 and up.
