NEW: THE VIRTUOSO BASSIST VOL. 2 BY BUGRA BALCI
Electric Bass is still a young instrument in the music world. It has a huge mystery yet to be explored and discovered.

The Virtuoso Bassist series is primarily intended for Bass guitars. Double Bassists and Cellists can utilize the series, too. As a continuation of the first volume, whose purpose is mainly to improve a musician's technique through more mechanical structured compositions, this book contains more melodical compositions which are aimed to improve their musical phrases through established technique. In this book, I present you the way to become a Bass virtuoso. Written in standard notation (no TAB). 236 pages.
