Product Details


For all musicians wishing to learn fantastic bass lines. While reading from the book, play along with the bassist on the recording (CD included) until you feel you've mastered his feel and nuances. Then, using the special stereo separation on all of our play-along recordings, switch the bassist off and play along by yourself with just the piano and drums!

This book (like all the Aebersold bass line transcription books) is a great study in professional bass line construction, and is a natural companion to the Aebersold play-alongs. Combo instructors can use this book to give their bass students instant, professional bass lines. Includes notes in bass clef with chord symbols above each measure.

This book includes transcribed bass lines from Aebersold's only play-along recorded with electric bass, and several choruses of two different blues progressions in all 12 keys. This is the ultimate study in blues walking!
