This book/CD set teaches 101 jazz bass patterns played over chords and chord progressions that are fundamental to the harmonic language of jazz. This is a very useful collection of major, Dorian, and Mixolydian patterns, eight bar patterns, turnaround patterns, and more. Because each pattern is played over a common chord progression, it will be easy to apply these examples in performance. In addition, you'll experience a noticeable improvement in your knowledge of the fingerboard, technical facility, harmonic vocabulary, and the ability to conceive and express modern musical ideas. This book includes a glossary of jazz scales and basic theory for the jazz musician. Ideal for those who currently play blues, country, folk, classical or rock, and desire to venture into jazz. A companion CD is included. Written in standard notation and tablature.
