The Total Blues Bassist is a unique and exciting journey through the diverse world of blues bass playing. The blues has influenced countless styles of music---including rock, jazz, pop, and country---and is loved for the depth of feeling it captures. This book will teach you all the skills you need to master the blues, such as various left- and right-hand techniques as well as advanced concepts like using silence and dynamics to help you create more interesting bass lines. Learn how to lock in with the drummer, guitarist, and singer, and even how to play without a drummer. You will also discover many styles such as delta blues, Chicago blues, Texas blues, rockabilly, funk, and jazz blues. You can build your own style on the bass as well as prepare for any blues situation you encounter. A CD demonstrating the examples in the book is included.
