Hal Leonard

A definitive approach to the theory, practice, and performance of electric bass guitar, revised and updated.

The original 1984 edition of this title gained wide recognition and acceptance as the best single-volume work in its field. Now, in response to all the new developments in bass technique and application, GPI has put together a revised and updated edition of the invaluable Electric Bass Guitar book from Hal Leonard. Included in this comprehensive new volume are the most up-to-date instructional columns, private bass lessons, and hard-to-find features from GPI Special Edition: Bass Player magazine. Also featured are important tips and lessons from the foremost artists in the field—Jeff Berlin, Carol Kaye, Nathan East, Stanley Clarke, Billy Sheehan, Jimmy Haslip, Bunny Brunel, and others—who take you all the way from choosing an electric bass guitar to reading, music theory, practicing, improving technique, and soloing. The Electric Bass Guitar book also has a new section on bass repair, maintenance, and modification. 122 pages.

Learn from the MASTERS!

Comments about Hal Leonard Electric Bass Guitar Book:

This book is GREAT! Ive had it for many years now and still pick it up and read it. It's very old but the lessons are TIMELESS! It is bassically a collection of lessons published in bass player magazine over the years. Since the lessons are written by different bass players you learn many different perspectives. Nice book, maybe a little hard read for the absolute begginer though.
