  • January 06, 2005 Bass 101 to get you started

    Neumann’s book takes less than 2 full pages to discuss his system of notation, how to transpose, & major scales & key signatures. The remaining 38 pages are chord charts for 330 songs, instrumentals & fiddle tunes. They are listed alphabetically, & some cross-referencing is also provided. There are also 9 Christmas...

    songs included too. A beginning bass player would be able to easily use these charts to practice or jam with. Rather than full bass lines, Neumann’s charts primarily offer the root & the fifth for each chord in the songs. There are few variations or passing notes provided. His book includes no music, tab, or lyrics. Although he did it occasionally, it would have been more helpful to consistently label which lines are for a song’s verse, & which are for the song’s chorus. While this is elementary bass 101, it will open the doors for some bluegrassers who are just starting out on the instrument. (Joe Ross, staff writer, Bluegrass Now)
