Progressive Heavy Metal Method for Bass Guitar and Progressive Heavy Metal Techniques for Bass Guitar introduce all the important techniques used by the world's best heavy metal bass players from beginner to professional level. If you have no previous knowledge of bass guitar playing or music, it is recommended that you start with Progressive Heavy Metal Method.
Both music and tablature notation are used to show the position of the notes on the fretboard. A metronome or a drum machine is suggested to help you develop your rhythm and keep time.
Due to the speed, phrasing and range of heavy metal bass licks they are quite often very hard to read from written music. For this reason it is essential to have the cassette tape that contains all the examples in this book. The book tells you where to locate your fingers and what technique to use, and the tape lets you hear how the lick should sound.
Also, as this book covers all aspects of heavy metal bass playing some of the later lessons may need a bit more time. It is recommended you use other bass guitar books in the Progressive series to expand your knowledge and skill i.e. Progressive Slap Bass and Progressive Tapping Technique for Bass Guitar.
Progressive Heavy Metal Licks for Bass Guitar Volume 1 and Volume 2 are also available and contain over 130 licks each. They incorporate all the techniques learned in Heavy Metal Method and Heavy Metal Techniques. Each of these books contain licks for beginner to advanced levels.
All metal bass guitarists use these same basic techniques and licks outlined in this book. It is very important to try your own ideas and experiment with these basics in order to ultimately form your own distinctive and recognisable style. It is recommended you 'jam' constantly with other musicians.
