Description
This comprehensive method includes every conceivable aspect of jazz bass performance. It begins with the teaching of the basics using illustrations of hand positions, basic theory, the first position, how to read music, fingering, accelerated fingerboard studies, a fingerboard note location chart to the 12th fret, four-string studies, rhythm studies, syncopated rhythms and dotted notes. The book then introduces the second through seventeenth position, scale and arpeggio studies, accelerated fingerings using two-octave scales and various arpeggios, chord applications, rhythm patterns, extension fingerings, and harmonic minor and harmonized major scales using diatonic 7th chords. PartIV consists of theory for the bassists, chord construction, relating chord symbols and numbers, and the harmonized major, natural, harmonic, and ascending (jazz) melodic minor scales. Diagrams of 26 chords with the transposition charts using "G" and "C" fingerings are included. Each progression covers many playing styles encountered by the modern bassist, including: walking, 2-beat, syncopated rhythms(funk), Latin, bebop changes, pop-rock, blues, traditional blues, deadened-string technique, funk playing plus full chord progressions within tunes. Chords are suggested for the very diverse bass lines, syncopated patterns, scales and arpeggios. Written in standard notation with chord diagrams.
