The modern electric bass guitar patterns presented here are designed to teach the student guitarist and bassist the basics of playing effective "walking bass line" accompaniment for instrumentalists and vocalists. This is a no-nonsense book that gets quickly to the heart of the matter. It would best be appreciated by the intermediate to advanced student already familiar with the fundamentals of electric bass guitar technique. Written in notation and tablature, Walking Bass provides a thorough grounding in chord theory as applied to the electric bass. The accompanying CD recording is very helpful in grasping the aural concepts presented in the book.
