This superb study book or method supplement for any bass student contains 19 bass rhythm parts in a mixture of popular styles, including shuffles, reggae, rock, swing, standard walking bass, be-bop, "newgrass," syncopated Latin lines, the jazz waltz, and country western. Performance notes are included with each tune explaining how to use position and fingering markings, when to shift position, how to count and play syncopated rhythm patterns, and more. Bass parts are in notation and tablature with fingerings and positions, and guitar lead and chord parts are shown. In addition, there are sections dealing with slap/pop and hammer-on techniques. Includes a handy "base line" manual and a chord arpeggio chart. The unique "one-glance" fingerboard chart shows musical notation exactly where it appears on the frets.
