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.

"I try to make sure my part is notable -- that it's not only right for the song, but also represents the bass in the highest light."
--Nathan East

"The art of music is governed by the laws of harmony, theory and rhythm. These laws and theories must be studied in order to attain and maintain precious, unforseen rewards."
--Chuck Rainey

"Even when playing the simplest song with just whole notes, make sure that they're very good whole notes!"
--Larry Paxton

"It's the bass that makes them dance."
--Darcy Wright

"Guitar is for the head, drums are for the chest, but bass gets you in the groin."
--Suzi Quatro
