Funk bass Book and CD

This book introduces the beginner to the basics of playing Funk Bass guitar. No previous knowledge of bass guitar playing or music is required. All techniques and rhythms are gradually introduced in a very easy and clear way using over 100 examples. You do not need to read music to use this book, however, both music and tablature notation are used to show the position of the notes on the fretboard. A metronome or a drum machine is suggested to help you develop your rhythm and keep time. The emphasis of this book is to get the student to play interesting music on the bass, and even the early examples sound great! It is recommended that you use the CD that is available for this book. It contains all the examples within, and you will learn faster when you are able to hear what the example sounds like and play along with the backing band. As the bass player is part of the rhythm section, it is essential to play together as often and as soon as possible with other instruments, especially drums. Chord symbols are placed above some examples so that a guitarist can play along with the bass guitar. Note that the fingering is only a possible suggestion and it is often a personal choice what feels more natural or comfortable. In some instances you may want to change the fingering to suit your playing style. The standard fingering on a bass is one finger per fret.
