If you are a guitarist and your band needs you to play bass, or you just want to become a more diverse, in-demand musician, then this book is for you. Applying what you know about the guitar to the bass, you'll quickly master fundamentals including outlining chords, important progressions, and the bassist's safety net: the root and 5th. By the time you're done with this book, you'll understand the role of the bass player in the band and how to lock in with the drummer, be able to slap & pop, and read music in bass clef and TAB. Examples from the book are performed on the CD for listening and playing along. 48 pages.
