A Fun and Comprehensive Overview of Rock Bass Playing

Pick up this comprehensive book and experience a unique and exciting journey through the diverse world of rock bass playing. From the blues-soaked sound of early rock 'n' roll to the hyperkinetic thrash of modern metal, this book has something for every kind of bassist out there-no matter what your style and preference is. This book breaks down the styles of iconic players and includes authentic-sounding examples. Learn the technique, theory, and song forms needed to be a great bassist, and take the stage in your own rock band. A CD demonstrating the examples in the book is included. Features: • Examples in a wide variety of styles including classic rock, metal, punk, blues, reggae, ska, and funk • Basic chord progressions used in thousands of songs • Essential techniques including fingerstyle, pick, slap & pop, tapping, and double-stops • Important rock rhythms and odd time signatures • Lots of scales, triads, arpeggios, and modes, including exotic scales for a modern sound.
