Way more than just the bass-ics . . .  

Whatever youre playingfunk, soul, rock, blues, countrythe bass is the heart of the band. Bassists provide a crucial part of the driving force and funky framework that other members of any band work off. From John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin, to The Pixies Kim Deal, to James Browns favored bassist, Jimmy Nolan, bass players have made big names for themselves and commanded respect throughout music history.  

In Bass Guitar For Dummies, Patrick Pfeifferwho coached U2s Adam Clayton, among othersis your friendly guide to laying down the low end. Starting from the beginning with what bass and accessories to buy, the book shows you everything from how to hold and position your instrument to how to read music and understand chords. Youll develop your skills step-by-step until youre confident playing your own solos and fills.  

  • Sharpen skills with instructional audio and video 
  • Discipline your play with exercises 
  • Understand chords, scales, and octaves 
  • Care for your instrument 

Whether youre new to the bass or already well into the groove, Bass Guitar For Dummies gives you the thorough balance of theory and practice that distinguishes the titanic Hall of Famer from the just so-so. 

P.S. If you think this book seems familiar, youre probably right. The Dummies team updated the cover and design to give the book a fresh feel, but the content is the same as the previous release of Bass Guitar For Dummies (9781118748800). The book you see here shouldnt be considered a new or updated product. But if youre in the mood to learn something new, check out some of our other books. Were always writing about new topics!
