This indispensable compendium helps players of all levels produce better and more creative bass lines. The author offers an in-depth exploration of the history and workings of amps, speakers, pickups, and effects, with a selection of essential gear old and new spotlighted in full-page breakouts, many in full color. In the technique section, bassists learn about tuning, reading music, scales and chords, and advanced techniques. Along with a suggested-listening list and reference guide, The Bass Handbook provides an unrivaled collection of bass information, one that otherwise might take an entire career to amass. The included CD has 80-plus tracks of exercises and examples.
