i was just wondering what are the best learning bass books
Bass Grooves by Ed Friedland
You will find many infos on bass books here...
I like Tom Wolk's Rock Riffs for Bass. I wish there was a comanion CD.
The essential Jaco Pastorius
David Overthrows books are great.
The Improvisers Bass Method - Chuck Sher
Standing in the Shadows of Motown - Dr. Licks
Dill's Bassics, A book I did for school, it's not great but yeah... I could send it to u if you want....
Has anyone heard of the Bass Anthology?
I have a book called "The Dictionary of Bass Grooves" by Sean Malone. It's not exactly super-beginner level, but it covers a lot of styles.
" The great James Brown rhythm sections"
+100000. Dave is my private instructor. His books are great. Pick up the Complete Electric Bass Method, you won't be disappointed.
One of the best books I have purchased is called" Harmonic colors for bass" by david C. Gross It gives so much insight into thinking outside the box. Highly recomended it has so many unfamiliar approaches that I cant put it down, here is something from his website.HARMONIC COLORS FOR BASS, ADD STYLE, AND DIMENSION TO YOUR GROOVES WITH TECHNICAL EXERCISES, AND MUSICAL EXAMPLES. LEARN TO BUILD STRONG BASSLINES FOLLOWING GUIDELINES TO CONSTRUCT SCALES, ARPEGGIOS, AND MODES IN A MUSICAL CONTEXT. A PLAY ALONG CD IS INCLUDED.
