No band would be complete without a bass element giving depth and unity. "How to Play Bass Guitar" contains everything the new or intermediate bass player needs to perfect their playing of this vital instrument. Highly practical, the book leads you from the basics of how to hold, fret, pluck and play scales through to playing chord-framing patterns and muted percussive rhythms - understanding how the bass underpins the harmonies of a band. The clear text is accompanied by illustrative photos and diagrams, and the guide is complemented by a chord finder, scales and modes finder, a glossary and further reading.
