About this book
This indispensable handbook helps players of all levels produce better, more creative, and more varied bass lines. Divided into two sections - Playing Your Bass and Knowing Your Bass - it covers everything from tuning, reading music, scales and chords, and advanced techniques to tips on buying and upgrading a budget bass and troubleshooting. Along with a list of suggested listening and reference guide, this book provides an unrivalled digest of bass information that might otherwise take an entire career to amass. It begins with a 'Basics' section that assumes nothing about your ability. 'Scales and Chords' shows you how to add other notes to your bass lines and includes exercises to extend musical knowledge and train your ear. It develops your understanding of the links between chords and scales, helping you to play from a chord chart or to improvise when required. Most of the ideas and techniques can be achieved without reading music at all, although the information is there for those who can. The 'Reading music' section develops an intuitive approach using pattern recognition rather than the usual mechanical (counting) method, and introduces a skill that may eventually become important to your professional career. Advanced techniques includes harmonics and fretless bass.

    Ernie Ball Music Man

    Love these strings. Great price, great tone, and long lasting.

    First off, I want to say that I am a finger player, I play in tunings from E standard to B standard but D standard mostly. I do not use a pick (may matter to the pick players considering these strings) and I have been playing bass for about 8 or 9 years and have tried a great variety of strings out there. D'addarios, GHS, DR, Rotosound, Dean Markley, so on and so forth. When I first started playing bass I wanted to try out a lot of strings just to find the perfect sound for me. I am a metal bass player mainly. I also play classic rock, blues, whatever. ANYWAYS, I recently bought a Schecter Stilleto Studio 5 bass. It came loaded with regular slinkys and I was super impressed. Before then I was a DR guy. They had awesome tone but didn't last as long as I needed. So I bought another pair of regular slinkys. Then I was starting to realize I wasn't getting a punchy high end on the regs. Also the "E" string was just a tad too.. I guess loose would be the word. You would think that... 5/5 MMADD - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Simply the Best

    5/5 RoyStereo - See all my reviews This review is from: Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinky Nickel Wound Bass Set, .045 - .105 (Electronics) As i titled my review, this string set is as good as the expensive ones, plus it has that particular punchy, fat, clear sound that everyone loves. I am not only a bass player but also a string dealer. Because of this I had the opportunity to test a wide range of brands, materials, gauges, etc. Ernie ball have something that the other ones don't. Give you the opportunity to check it!

    Best sounding, playing strings I have found for my Rickenbacker 4003!

    I own 10 bass guitars and use a variety of DR string models on all of them. One of my favorite DR sets is their Sunbeams, which I use on all of my short scale basses. I was looking for something with a coating to try on my 4003 and had read good things about these Black Beauty strings which I discovered are basically coated Sunbeams, just like the other DR coated strings like the Red Devils!Prior to swtitching over to these I had been running with DR Lo-Riders on my 4003 which I also use on my Fender Jazz Basses. Contrary to the nice top end bite I get from these on my 62 and 73 Jazz, I just wasn't getting the classic RIC tone I wanted out of the 4003 with LO-Riders installed, so this is why I decided to give these a try.I had been running with DR Red Devils on my Fender Jaguar and my Gretch DuoJet for a long time so I already knew that these coated DRs have a great tone, reduced fret clatter and easy on the fingers to boot, so I already knew there was a... 5/5 The Resident Gourmet (California) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    The Best for Bass

    5/5 Joel Krautstrunk (Las Vegas, NV) - See all my reviews, February 23, 2010

    These are also OK. But they aren't my preferred string.

    3/5 M. Maresca (Tampa, Floriduh - USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: DR Strings Bass Strings, Black Beauties - Extra-Life, Black-Coated (Electronics) This strings look cool and they sound fine. I also bought a set of black strings and I alternated the colors. It gives the illusion that I only have 2 strings on the bass. That's pretty funny. The color takes a while to wear off and reveal the silver below it.However, they need some lubrication if you ever plan on sliding your fingers up or down the string. I nearly burned my finger the first time I tried a big slide up the E-string. Ouch. If you use string ease or fast fret, you'll be fine.
