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.

50 MODAL SLAP BASS WORKOUTS
This 5 1/2" by 8" QWIKGUIDE was created for the bassist who has mastered the basics of slap bass and wants to expand his or her skills. Many of this book's examples were written to fine tune individual string control -- the ability to thumb or pop on any string at any time. Individual string control is one of the most common weaknesses with slap bass students. Some of this book's examples are common fingerstyle workouts that are arranged for slapping. Developing the ability to slap finger style bass lines gives the bassist an amazing skill. This book covers some very advanced slap techniques, including triple pops and the flamenco thumb technique. Written in tablature only for the four-string bass. Includes audio CD. 48 pages. Our Price: US$7.95
