Extreme Metal Bass also includes enhanced online audio with demonstration and play-along tracks of all the examples in the book, plus play-along MIDI drum files for optimum practicing.

This book is designed for players who use a standard-tuned five-string bass (low to high: B-E-A-D-G). If you do not have a five-string bass, a four string (tuned B-E-A-D) will work for much of the material presented.
