This 5 1/2" by 8" Qwikguide shows bassists how to play along with popular jazz chord progressions. The examples demonstrate how to use triads, arpeggios, scales, and passing tones in swing, be-bop, bossa nova, and ballad styles. The sample bass lines are all written in tablature for the 4-string bass, making it easy to learn fingerings and positions. The included CD presents each example twice, once as bass solo with accompaniment (piano and drums) and then as accompaniment only.
