This book is all about Heavy Metal bass playing. It can be very fast and complicated. A variety of grooves (open string, octave, hammer-on) that range from old school to contemporary are presented. Rhythmic studies and rhythm section awareness are also a focal point. Working with space and complicated kicks is a major part of this style. Audio tracks are available that feature original instrumental songs with a full band and play-along mixes. There is also a section that focuses on music theory and interesting scale options. All examples are written in bass clef 4 and tablature. Free audio downloads are available from the publisher for use with this title.
