Bass Resources on GN

Post by Laz » July 21st, 2003, 10:22 am

Hi All;

If you are new to GuitarNoise, you may not be aware of all the lessons and other articles that are available here (there are many!). In the Bass section, there are lessons on creating basslines, and advice on buying basses and amps.  Click here: http://www.guitarnoise.com/bass.php

If there is something you'd like to know more about and you don't see it there, feel free to post a request here.

All lessons have been grouped under the "lessons" tab. Also on the home page you can use the itemized contents listing in the left column. They had to make room for the "forum" tab, you know!   ;)

Peace

A great help to me when learning how to play bass was my friend
James 'Wheat' Martin's free, online Bass Book.

In it, Wheat covers all the basics of bass playing and is an invaluable
guide to the beginning through intermediate bass player.

    chapter 7 sounding notes 102: slapping & popping 
    chapter 8 sounding notes 102: two-hand tapping 
    chapter 9 scales 101: blues scale, minor & major pentatonics 

    Book II
    
    chapter 10 scales 102: the modes of the major scale 
    chapter 11 scales 102: moveable scale forms 

    chapter 12 theory 101: chord construction & inversions 
    chapter 13 theory 101: diatonic harmony

    chapter 19 theory 102: reading music

Pretty nice book. Just read the first one so far. That Wheat guy is nice for putting that out for free. He belongs here at GN!
