Created to help give you context to all the music you worked so hard to learn.
The Mel Bay Blues Bass Play-Along Trax Book and CD give you a very realistic taste of how you would play your bass live with a band. Welcome to the School of the Blues Lesson Series. The recorded Play-Along Trax in the included CD have no bass so you can work on your blues bass patterns. Mel Bay has used several different keys and tempos throughout these Play-Along Trax.
Music examples are kept fairly simple to make sure this book is accessible to bass players just above the beginning level. For best understanding of these techniques, refer to Mel Bay's Blues Bass, Level 1.
Lastly, all the references in this book are written for a right-handed 4- string electric bass. If you play a 5-string bass you just need to extend the examples to include your B string. If you play left-handed, then you need to reverse any references to the left and right hands. This book uses standard music notation along with bass tablature (TAB).
