The Bassist's Bible: How to Play Every Bass Style from Afro-Cuban to Zydeco by Tim Boomer, Mick Berry, Chaz Bufe

The incredible diversity of the bass guitar is revealed in this newly revised, all-inclusive style guide. Each chapter covers particular styles or families of styles, gradually introducing players to techniques that will allow them to get the most out of their instrument and easily increase their bass repertoire. More than 400 bass grooves are presented, spanning an excess of 100 styles that musicians can follow along with on each of the two accompanying CDs. In addition to techniques for mastering the various styles, historical information about how they developed is included, giving players a one-of-a-kind opportunity to be true masters of the bass guitar. All musical samples in this updated edition are in both standard notation and tablature and the style histories, bibliography, and discography are up-to-date. Also included are 50 new grooves and a DVD with videos of the proper way to play more than 100 examples.
