Ron Carter is a master at the jazz bass, and has played and recorded with many of the all-time greats of jazz. He's also an in-demand session player and an author of several books on bass technique. In this in-depth book/CD package, he provides a series of lessons and exercises which cover everything from fingering techniques to mastering fast tempos.
With illustrations and sidebars aplenty, Ron Carter illustrates step-by-step basic concepts of creating bass lines; he delves into getting better tone by focusing on right-hand technique; constructing lines using non-harmonic tones and diverse rhythms; and developing better pitch.
The 48 page, large-format (9x12) soft-cover book also includes a play-along CD with an all-star rhythm section and isolated bass parts, so players can listen to Ron play the sample written lines, and practice them with the CD - with the guitar, piano and drums backing them up. These play-along exercises give you a unique way to apply your new knowledge, and soon you'll be creating your own memorable and unique bass lines.
The lessons are very clear and well explained. This book is definitely suitable for beginners.
