Bass Handbook free pdf The electric bass guitar is central to modern music, playing a key role in melody, harmony, and rhythm. This new, revised edition of The Bass Handbook will help you master the instrument and make it your own. The book-and-CD package includes a step-by-step guide to playing, from tuning to advanced harmony, and offers practical guidance on reading both tab and standard notation. It has instruction on modern techniques, including slapping and harmonics, and it offers level-headed advice on playing a range of genres and styles, from rock and blues through to jazz, funk, and metal. There is also a section featuring bass lines written in the style of some of the great bassists from yesterday and today, to inspire and instruct. With a foreword by the ex-Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones, the book explores the history of the electric bass and its key makers and has a guide to the great bassists, as well as recommendations for listening, reading, viewing, and researching online. There is help with buying and maintaining your bass and advice on amps, speakers, strings, pickups, effects, and cables. The book's wiro-binding is designed to allow it to open flat for ease of use. The specially recorded CD has over 80 tracks that present the book's key musical exercises and examples. In 1964-1965, Larry Kane was the only American reporter, broadcast or newspaper, to travel with the Fab Four on every stop of their North American tour. In Ticket to Ride, Kane tells the story of what it was like to literally live with the four young men who would leave an indelible mark on contemporary music. Weaving in the voices of the Beatles themselves and covering the electrifying action of the road - the performances, the mischief, and all the players who cropped up along the way during those key years that catapulted the Beatles to major success - Ticket to Ride is unlike any other book on the Beatles. The story is told from the perspective of a seasoned journalist, who at the time of the tour was just coming into his own in a nation that was bracing for the Vietnam War, the civil rights movement, and a radical shift in rock-and-roll music. Twenty-one and eager to cover "big news," Kane unknowingly was in the process of covering one of the biggest music events in history. Ticket to Ride is an inside account of these exciting years during the career of the band that redefined rock and roll. A must-have for Beatles fans, this paperback edition includes a foreword by the legendary Dick Clark, a CD of bonus interview material, rare photographs, and an appendix detailing tour schedules.
