50 Tunes for Bass Volume 1 is one book in a 5-book series. The 50 Tunes series is a collection of Bluegrass, Old Time and Celtic tunes for ensembles, families and individuals. This book contains the same 50 tunes as those found in the other 4 books of the series, but carefully designed for the bass.
The parts in this book range from beginner to advanced and are arranged in basic, active and solo levels. Basic, a standard accompaniment mode is the simplest level of bass playing. Active Bass is a mixture of basic accompaniment and walking which is common in jazz music. Solo Bass (which involves fast, syncopated melodic phrases) is the most complex level of Bass playing.
All parts are written in standard Bass clef notation and 4-line Bass tablature. Tunes recorded by full band, not all instruments featured in every song. Includes access to extended length online audio.
