When Leo Fender invented the electric bass in the early 1950s, little did he know the musical revolution that would follow. Dozens of musical styles were born as a direct result of his invention. Mel Bay's Encyclopedia of Bass Riffs is an overview of over 40 different musical styles, covering 50 years of electric bass playing. Through a wide variety of stylistic examples, this book explores many musical genres that may have never existed without the electric bass guitar.
