This is the book for you if you always wanted to learn but somehow kept putting it off, if you�ve played bass before and given up or if you�re determined to crack it this time. The no-nonsense guide that will soon have you playing big, fat glorious bass grooves with as little pain as possible! Some basic musical knowledge is handy, but the 2 CDs included feature a demonstration and backing tracks for each exercise. Arranged by Matt Scharfglass who is a New York-based songwriter, bassist and multi-instrumentalist. He does session work, leads his own band and performs extensively in the New York City area.
