Classic Gems for Electric Bass

Classic Gems for Electric Bass (Includes seven solos and one duet). Edited by Damon Mazzocco. For electric bass. Classical and Instructional. Beginner, intermediate. Collection. Bass tablature. 20 pages. Published by Jamey Aebersold Jazz (JA.CGEB).

ISBN 978-1-56224-268-8. With bass tablature. Classical and Instructional.

Did you ever wonder where all those great sounding arpeggio runs and bass lines came from? They come from the easily playable material of great composers such as Carcassi, Bach, and Carulli. As the electric bass has become an immensely exciting and popular instrument, its standards for technical excellence have also risen. What we find lacking is a thoughtful, graded approach to learning solos for electric bass.Each of the timeless classics presented here is playable by the beginner to early-intermediate bassist. All are presented in both "standard" and TAB form. Of greatest importance is that this book exceeds its intended goal - to enable each student to experience the emotional and musical joy of playing not just one, but many pieces of music from start to finish. Each of these Classic Gems is suitable for solo performance by today's modern bass guitarist.

  • Italian Waltz  Composed by Ferdinando Carulli
  • Serenade for strings  Composed by Ferdinando Carulli

  • March 24, 2007 The nicest solos!

    I tell my students,"Practice by doing." The music in this book contains the very beginning arpeggio patterns, simple "position playing" shifts excercises not found in many books. Give me month and I coudn't think of all the positive things I've learned from this.

  • March 20, 2007 The Best Bass Guitar solos I've learned!

    I've seen the "Bach for Bass" garbage and most of us don't have the developed technique to play them. BUT THIS IS TERRIFIC. I learmd every song in this book. No bassist I know has this many solos in their repetoire-now my friends want to borrow it...
