Mel Bay's Modern Electric Bass Method Grade 1 (Book w/CD)
Modern Method Series
Written in the tradition of Mel Bay's original Modern Guitar Method, Grade 1. Combines ease of learning with outstanding music selections. Provides music theory essential to understanding the book's performance demands.Tablature was not used in this book, except in specific situations, in order to encourage the development of standard music notation reading skills. With the large number of extended range electric basses being used today, an effort was made to include notes for those instruments where applicable. In some instances,a choice of two notes instead of one is provided. These can be played in whatever octave the student prefers or has available on the instrument.
