If you’re curious about playing chords on the bass or you just want to hone your skills, you’re in luck. Janek Gwizdala has released Chordal Harmony: A Comprehensive Guide to Chords on Bass. The extensive eBook includes bass and treble clef notation as well as TAB for learning the exercises. Furthermore, accompanying HD video will help demonstrate and explain the lessons.
While the book is chockfull of great information, Gwizdala stresses that it’s a jumping off point for your own exploration. “I wrote this book not because I believe this is the definitive way to play chords on the bass or understand harmony; it’s more than likely not,” he wrote. “I wrote this book because it outlines precisely how I’ve worked on this area of my playing for over 20 years, and it has served me incredibly well. If you dig deep into these exercises, they will act as a catalyst for your process when it comes to learning chordal harmony. So make these ideas your own. Steal them, copy them, adapt them, hate them, love them, turn them upside down, and leave them behind as fast as you picked them up, so you’re always in search of something original. These ideas are only the beginning, and certainly not the end.”
Chordal Harmony is available now from Janek Gwizdala’s website with a sale price of $40.
