Verdine White’s “Playing the Bass Guitar” Re-released
Playing the Bass is updated with a new cover, spans 136 pages, and includes two companion CDs.
The book kicks off with approaches to reading music, holding the bass, and progressively covers the notes on the fretboard, with slap basics, scales, thumping and popping in octaves, moving up the neck, syncopation and strength and endurance.
The companion CDs offer audio tracks for each of the example, so you can follow along in your studies.
The music is presented in both standard notation and tab.
