Talk The Language Of Music With The Electric Bass; Volume One

The first of two volumes on the Electric Bass, this book will help the beginner and those who play 'by ear' to understand the theory of music as it applies to the Electric Bass and what to play as a Bassist.

You will learn to play by understanding Chords and reading Chord Charts as well as reading music itself, but also to adapt what is written to how YOU want, or are able, to play.
