Publisher: Hal Leonard Corporation

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.

    Top strings: Nice to install and play

    5/5 Love2Shop - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: D'Addario EXL160 Nickel Wound Bass Guitar Strings, Medium, 50-105, Long Scale (Electronics) The following was written by my husband who uses the bass guitar.I don’t think anyone likes to restring an electric bass guitar. It can be like fighting a hardware war with the heavy wires. With the D’Addario string set I bought, I had a pretty easy time. Some of the nice features are the color-coded stays and the tapering on the E-string.You will also find the finish on the strings to be very smooth and even. The set of strings comes in a sealed bag so there is no oxidation or corrosion. After you have finished the grunt work, tuning these strings is very consistent and they tune to pitch without any trouble.I found the strings to be easy on my fingers. I got the medium nickel wound strings and they are on the mellow side. I like the sound and the action of the strings. I would certainly buy these again. (Pics simply show the color stays and stringing progress)., December 27, 2015

    The Best Strings...

    5/5 Uncle Meat (Southeastern PA, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: D'Addario EXL170TP Nickel Wound Bass Guitar Strings, Light, 45-100, 2 Sets, Long Scale (Electronics) Simply put, these are the best strings at the lowest price. I've been playing electric bass for over 35 years and these are the brand I always come back to. I've tried Dr. Bass, Rotosounds, Fender, Markleys, etc. with no noticeable difference or improvement. D'Addarios sound great and last a long time. You can usually find them in multi-packs and/or on sale so it doesn't hurt to change them more often. This is one example where use don't get what you pay for, your get more! They come in many different lengths and gauges, so make sure you buy the correct set for your instrument. If you select a different gauge, don't forget that you may have to make adjustments to the intonation, string height, and/or neck relief on your bass or guitar.

    Awesome choice.

    5/5 Amazon Customer (Piedmont of North Carolina) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: D'Addario EXL160TP Medium Gauge Nickel Wound Bass Strings XL 50-105 Long-Scale, 2 Sets (Electronics) I've been playing Flatwounds for years because I was addicted to the thump and solid fundamental they give, and mellower sounds I could get - Rotosounds and more recently Labella DTB flats. The DAddarios are obviously not Flatwounds, but sounded good to my ears immedietly and I could coax darker mellow sounds if needed by rolling off the tone knob. After a week or so of playing they have nice thump, a meaty mid range which I love and works well for recording, and the bright 'clack' I usually associate with roundwound strings seems minimal. The playability is great, and its hard to beat 2 (separately packed and sealed) sets of strings for this price! I'm a convert.[I play a jazz bass with vintage reissue pickups, play worship band weekly and record indie rock / post rock music at home so I like moderately aggressive tone that I can dial back when needed.

    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?)

    Sharp Looking Strings

    After swapping out all of the chrome hardware for black, I decided to take it a step further with some black strings. I could not be happier with how they look. And since assessing strings based solely on their looks doesn't make sense, I waited a few weeks before determining if the sound would be acceptable.Out of the box they definitely sounded different than a lot of the strings I've used. Not quite as bright, but they had a good punch. I've been playing with a classic rock band and they really cut through the mix with the P bass. After a few weeks they don't appear to have changed in sound, and I'm really liking the tone. I have actually gotten some compliments from the other guys in the band on the tone.I only have two minor issues with the strings...1) It took a while to get used to how they feel. The black coating makes them feel a little "sticky". At first I wasn't sure if I would get used to it, but adjusting has been relatively... 5/5 asromzek - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Bright, but not too bright.

    I have never used coated strings before, but I decided to give these a try based on some of the other reviews I read. I tend to have a heavy-handed right hand, so my style of play tends to generate a fair amount of string noise. I have struggled for a long time to find a balance between trimming the treble on my instrument to control the string noise versus keeping a nice bright tone.I will admit that the coating on the strings does take a bit of getting used to, but nothing that requires more than a couple of days practicing to find a comfort level with the feel of the strings. More importantly for me, the string coating has been effective in damping some of the string noise generated by my style of play while still allowing me to keep my tone control wide open. The strings are not quite a bright as a new set of uncoated strings, but still bright enough that the highs of the bass come through. I have heard others say that the strings feel like a new set of standard... 5/5 Pgh_Bass - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    They are particularly good for rock, funk, and any style in which the bass needs to cut through.
    Fender super bass 7250's are an excellent all-purpose bass string.
    Fender super bass 7250's combine the high output and dynamic sound of steel with the smooth feel of nickel.
    The result is a string with bright highs and a thunderous low end.
    Super bass 7250's are installed at the factory on all Fender us and Mexico basses.
