This book was written to serve three purposes: 1) To provide bassists with an 'escape' from being anchored to one position on the on the bass neck, and improve left-hand technique. 2) To familiarize bass players with notes and patterns throughout the entire range of the instrument. 3) To help in understanding and hearing modes and scales in all twelve keys. Each scale group is presented in a 'circle of fifths' format, starting with the scale or mode with no accidentals, in notation and tablature.
The audio download is a stereo recording, using electric bass guitar, electric guitar, and drums. It contains most of the exercises in the book and is designed as a play-along recording. Most of the exercises are recorded as bass and drums only, with the last few lessons adding electric guitar.
