There's more to rock bass playing than just following the guitarist's left hand! This book gives you all the tools you need to construct your own bass lines, creatively and effectively, in a rock context. You'll learn: tips on playing position and posture; warm-up exercises; essential scales and rhythms; building with octaves, approach notes and fifths; box shapes, pentatonic scales and blues; rhythmic variations; and more. The CD includes exercises and full-length tunes.
