BOOK INTRODUCTION
notation concepts are introduced in this book. (Progressive Bass Guitar by Gary Turner and Brenton White is an excellent reference book for basic theory and practical playing experience.)

Both music and Tablature notation are used to show where to find the notes on the fretboard of the bass.

If you don't have the tape that goes with this book, a metronome or a drum machine is suggested to help you develop your rhythm and keep time. However, due to the advanced rhythm patterns, particularly at the end of this book the cassette tape is essential. In most of the exercises in this book, the quarter note represents the counting beat (e.g. the 80 in Exercise 1 means 80 beats per minute on the metronome scale).

The book has been divided into 4 main sections:
SECTION ONE Introduces the Slapping Technique, along with basic rhythms, Ghost notes and Syncopation. All exercises in this section are played using open strings only. They have been designed to introduce you to the various rhythm patterns used by Bass guitarists, and to give you practice using the Slapping Technique with your thumb.SECTION TWO Introduces the 'Popping' Technique (using octaves) and more advanced rhythms including triplets, eighth and sixteen note combinations.

SECTION THREE Introduces the Hammer - On and Lift - Off techniques, more advanced off beat rhythms patterns and the Cross Hammer technique.

SECTION FOUR Consists of advanced Grooves, Licks and Patterns, incorporating all the techniques and rhythm used in the first 3 sections.

MARK MICHELL'S GUIDE TO RIGHT-HAND TECHNIQUE FOR BASS
Excerpt from Mark's book
My vision for this instructional book is to simply shed light and share my knowledge regarding plucking-hand technique, which is sometimes an afterthought to many players. I find many players focus so much on what the left hand is doing as it determines the musical qualities of your playing, but many forget about the hand that produces the sound. Without proper sound, your music simply cannot be heard! Many players are content with learning to produce a sound with the plucking hand, and will then stop there and look no further. This usually results in negligence over time to the proper development of the plucking hand, and can become an obstacle in your playing many years later.

All exercises are written for 4-string basses, but can be applied and adjusted for basses with additional strings. Techniques covered in this book can be utilized for most all common styles and genres of music. This book contains 143 total pages, 120+ exercises, a full-color gloss front cover and spiral bounding, which is most convenient for allowing the book to stay spread open on stands and flat surfaces!
