Bass Line Basics for Guitar by Charles H. Chapman

Bass Line Basics introduces guitarists to the art of adding bass lines to their chord/rhythm playing. Adding bass lines to the average chord progression gives a sense of direction and motion to chord accompaniment. "Four to the bar" comping with moving bass lines as well as bass lines with chord melody are also covered in this text. These techniques are valuable to the guitarist playing in small group and big band settings. Examples of each technique are written in standard notation and tab and cover a variety of styles. Music theory and chord construction basics are discussed in an easy to understand fashion. The concept of adding bass lines to guitar chord accompaniment is explained in a way that is easy to understand, with examples that are fun and instructional. The accompanying CD gives students the opportunity to hear the examples as they are written in the book.\
