Media Teach Yourself Bass Guitar with CD

Teach Yourself Bass Guitar by Bob Hartz was written to enable an inspired individual to learn to play this "nucleus" of every ensemble. With disciplined daily practice, you will quickly grasp the use of standard and tablature notation as well as the notes in first position. Once the importance of "time" is understood, scales are introduced in assorted keys to develop right-hand fingerstyle technique. This book includes an extremely helpful instructional CD which provides good basic exposure to the bass guitar. This title is a logical step-by-step approach to learning and teaching yourself at your own pace. Be sure to follow this guide in sequence since later information builds upon and utilizes facts presented earlier. Learning the bass has never been easier, so take your time, have some fun and you'll be "gigging" before you know it!
