Book Description: Backbeat Books, 2006. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: At the core of this book are full transcriptions (including tab and chord names) of nine of McCartney's finest bass parts: ' You Won't See Me', ' Drive My Car', ' The Word', and ' In My Life' from Rubber Soul; the classic B-side ' Rain'; ' Taxman' and ' I'm Only Sleeping' from Revolver; ' Lovely Rita' from Sgt Pepper; and ' Dear Prudence' from the White Album. Each of these nine key tracks is taken apart and examined in detail to remind today's bassists how much we can still learn from McCartney's remarkable playing skills. The nine transcriptions are set in the context of the story of McCartney's role as bass player in The Beatles from the first single, ' Love Me Do' in 1962, to the last album, Let It Be in 1970. Drawing on an interview with McCartney, the authors show how he started as a guitarist in the group but soon came to expand and transform bass playing, bringing new musical ideas and a fresh outlook on sound that virtually defined the role of the modern bassist in pop music. All bass players owe a debt to McCartney's groundbreaking and revolutionary work with The Beatles, and for the first time this book shows exactly why. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0879308842
