SIGHT READING WORKOUT STUDIES - COMPLETE 3 VOL. SET - EBOOK/PDF VERSION
This is all 3 books written by Peter Bierma. The books focus on different areas to help improve sight reading. Beginner to advanced.

SIGHT READING WORKOUT FOR BASS: ACCIDENTALS
The goal of this book is to help bass players develop total proficiency in reading accidentals. The inspiration came from a friend who worked as a personal trainer. He told me he’d “isolate” muscle groups to gain strength. I began to wonder: what if we isolated an unfamiliar bass skill and became an expert in it? What impact could this have? I also began to imagine being able to read anything. ANYTHING! “What gigs would I enjoy doing? What musicians would I play with? What opportunities would open up for me?” Whatever your answers, those key opportunities make practice feel worthwhile! This book was written from this desire to help others improve.

Sight Reading Workout For Bass: Accidentals is a complete guide that, if practiced slowly and regularly, will add great value to your recognition of accidentals. The exercises work as building blocks, so it’s recommended to play them in order. Resist the urge to jump ahead, particularly in the first two chapters where things can feel repetitive. It’s this very repetition that’s needed to build the crucial muscle memory to read like a pro! So be thorough. Musical growth is directly proportional to hours spent practicing. Written in standard notation and TAB. 64 Pages and 5 MP3 files.

SIGHT READING PRACTICE MATERIAL FOR BASS
Every bass player who reads music eventually has the same question, “I know the basics. Now what?” This book aims to answer it. Specifically, there are two objectives:
1) Help readers become ready to read anything. Given this goal, the exercises are written in various keys, times, and styles. For reference, the book is broken up into four chapters: quarters, eighths, sixteenths, and triplets.
2) Provide tons of reading material. When I wanted to improve reading, I quickly ran into a problem: I’d buy a reading book with great explanations, but only one or two examples to work on the concept! I felt if I spent 15 or 20 dollars, there ought to be lots of actual reading material. In this book, there are 50 full pages of exercises. I felt that explanations and guidance are readily available via the Internet, books, etc. What’s needed is plentiful, helpful, affordable content. Written in standard notation only (no TAB). 54 pages.

SIGHT READING WORKOUT: 101 BASS LINES
I wrote this book after seeing a need for more reading material, specifically, a collection of actual bass lines. The goal of this book is to provide the reader with a large collection of bass lines that would be both challenging and aesthetically pleasing. All examples were designed with this in mind: reading real-world examples.

People who have seen my other books know I prefer to practice sight reading when we can’t predict the next genre, key, and time signature. The essence of sight reading is “not knowing what’s next,” so why not fully embrace this philosophy when practicing? What if we could become great at it? What if we truly could play anything? Written in standard notation and TAB. 57 Pages and 101 MP3 files.

GARY TALLENT BASS LINES - EBOOK/PDF VERSION
Welcome to this collection of Garry Tallent transcriptions. Garry Tallent of course is known as the bassist for Bruce Springsteen/The E Street Band. And Garry held down this role for Springsteen when he was producing great material. It’s only my opinion, but the ‘golden period’ (for both Springsteen and Garry Tallent) was the late 70s to early 80s.

That period encompassed The River and Born In The USA. Both of those albums showcase Garry’s playing in what I believe is a virtual masterclass in rock bass playing. Garry’s particular skill is in creating lines that are dynamic and interesting - and delivering those lines in a band situation where the band sound is fuller than normal. And yet he manages to deliver those dynamic and interesting lines without claashing with any of the others (that can be tricky where you have multiple guitars and piano and organ).

One of the great things about Garry’s playing is that it’s relatively accessible for most bass players. He rarely plays the kind of virtuosic lines that say Geddy Lee plays. So players of lesser abilities can actually listen to some of his work and envisage themselves playing it - which is encouraging and inspiring in equal measures.

The true measure of what Garry created though is only appreciated when you sit down and analyze what he’s done. And then you start to see the nuances of rhythmic variations, pitch variations and so on that he incorporated in these lines. This includes accurate note-for-note transcription, one written in standard notation and TAB, and the other in just standard notation. 151 pages altogether.
