About this title


This book is a high potency method for any bass guitarist who is seeking to become a professional musician and who wishes to practice the techniques used by world class players.

There are many possible ways to construct jazz bass lines. This book explores one of those possible ways in depth. The method is built upon the use of chord tones, approach notes and basic reharmonization techniques.

Three forms common to the jazz idiom are used to explore this method; the Blues, Minor Blues and Rhythm Changes. A detailed explanation of the components of building a bass line note by note is included as well as an explanation of the theory behind basic reharmonization. This book also contains a section on the proper scale to use for each chord, with all chord types including available tensions and avoid notes.
