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.

    boil, bake, or buy NEW

    4/5 PH (UK) - 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) I used to boil and bake my strings several times per year. The process removes sweat, grease and dirt. The impetus came from Gary Willis. After using 50$ Elixir strings I decided to go cheap and keep the cooking for pasta. In other words, just get a fresh pair of these 15$ fenders and stay away from Marcus Miller DR unless you want to sacrifice your fingertips.Flat wound strings on a fret-less bass will last a lifetime; but that's another show.....

    Long Lasting Awesome Tone

    5/5 UberMykl - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Elixir Strings Nickel Plated Steel 4-String Bass Strings w NANOWEB Coating, Long Scale, Light (.045-.100) (Electronics) I have been playing bass for many years in both original and cover bands and have played many styles of music: Metal, Punk, Rock, Pop, Slap, Country, and Jazz. I play a Warwick Streamer LX and these strings give me the growl and character tone that is so recognizable of Warwick basses. I gig about every two weeks and practice almost every day so these strings get a lot of play time. It has been about 7 months since I ordered my last set of Elixer Light, Long Scale, NANOWEB strings and they are just now begining to dull in tone. I have been completely satisfied with these strings. Comfortable to play, great tone, and last forever. Musicians on a budget will appreciate the longevity of these strings. Warwick players will appreciate the nice-n-growly tone. Excellent product!! Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 25, 2013

    5/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Elixir Strings Nickel Plated Steel 4-String Bass Strings w NANOWEB Coating, Long Scale, Medium (.050-.105) (Electronics) I've been using these strings for about 8-9 years now, I'll never buy another type. The tone is bright yet smooth and not over agressive, the feel is amazing but may stand some getting used to if you've never used them, kinda like the slimy feeling when you get your braces taken off. They used to have the issue of the coating coming off an lbs making the strings "furry" but they changed their coating mixture and it no longer does this.The biggest plus is the EXTREME longevity, I usually replace these strings about once a year, but have been known to go about 2 years. They only begin to sound dull around the 8 month-1 year mark.Buy em, they're sweet. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 19, 2017

    Great, Bright-sounding Bass Strings

    5/5 Mike IronFist - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: GHS Strings Electric Bass Boomer Set (Medium Light Nickel Steel, 4-String, Long Scale) (Electronics) Ever since I was offered this brand when buying strings at a music shop, I've found them to be the best bass strings I've ever used.They have an extremely bright sound that resonates strongly and lasts a bit longer than others. If you play metal or punk rock, you'regoing to love how strong the sound is. If you play funk or do anything with slap bass as well, these will be an absolute godsend - theyare the best strings I've ever used for slapping and popping.Of course, these are round-wounds. Round-wound strings are bright in general, so if you're looking for a more mellow tone or you don't want to build up the callouses to play these strings, you're going to want flat-wound strings instead.

    The Kala U-Bass, like any stringed instrument, sounds and plays best with good strings

    5/5 Jay Keller (Sunnyvale, CA USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Kala Kala U-Bass Strings I didn't realize how worn the old strings really were. Upon close inspection I could see that they were stretched and bruised.Immediately upon installing the new set, the U-Bass sound improved and it was easier to play also.Change your strings when you see little deformities on them.

    Kala U-Bass Strings and comments.

    4/5 James C. Durham - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Kala Kala U-Bass Strings These are the original type strings from Kala. This type of string is a little tricky to install and tune. The strings have amazing tone and work very well, but it takes about 2 weeks for them to "settle down" and tune properly. When first installed, they will not stay in tune long and they are out of tune on the higher frets of the bass, but after a couple weeks, and continually tightening them (which stretches them), they work amazingly well. I'm very happy with them. I wish there was a quicker 'settle in' time, but once they reach that point, they stay in tune and intonation in good.

You want the Light version of these strings for Ashbory bass. So far the Low Tension version of these strings are my favorite Ashbory bass strings.

    Great strings

    5/5 Scott - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fender 9050 Stainless Flatwound Bass Strings (Electronics) I have a 30 year old epiphone accubass that I love to play. Flat wound has always been my favorite because I can slide up and down the strings and get that "WOW" sound without the string noise. I always felt that the bright sound loss from flats could be compensated with the amp. These Fender strings are the brightest flats I have used and the sustain is much longer. For the "round wound" fans that want the "flats" ease to play TRY THESE. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 9, 2014

    The missing link...

    5/5 CJBass - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fender Nylon Bass Guitar Strings, Light (Electronics) I bought my '77 jazz bass just over a year ago and after several tweaks and upgrades I really liked it's tone. However, I still didn't love it. The throaty snarl that my hero's J Basses had still eluded me. Someone suggested I try Fender Tapes a while ago but I've used Labella tapewounds on my fretless for years and while they have a nice upright type "plunk", there is little resembling growl. The main reason I tried these strings is because I figured for $20 I didn't have much to lose. I put these on during my lunch break the day they arrived and wow, huge mistake. I was so amazed by the sound I ended being late returning to work. This is the sound I've been hearing in my dreams. The tonal range of my bass is incredible with these on it. From low and mellow to full on snarl it is truly incredible how these have unleashed my four string beast. The feel is incredible too. I'll never buy anything else as long Fender makes these. I'd give 10 stars if I could. Nuff Said!!! Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 2, 2015

    Like Meyatch, I think the tone of these things ...

    Like Meyatch, I think the tone of these things leaves a little to be desired. My main strings are Rotosound roundwounds, which in my opinion have a more balanced sound with more grunt at the bottom end. These Fenders seem to have a bit of bloom in the upper mids. I'm waiting for them to dull out with steady use over time, hoping that bloom will go away.But, some perspective: First, no one in any audience will ever know the difference. Second, any differences can be eq'd out if the person at the console knows what he's doing. Third, in most mixes, that upper-mid range should be eq'd out anyway because it trespasses up into slots that belong to other instruments. (Who wants a congested mix? Not me.) Fourth, most live-sound systems, whether because of quality or the levels they're run at or both, are going to mask any differences between string sets of reasonably good quality. Fifth, most rooms are awful sound-wise, and that, too, will mask any differences... 4/5 Craig (New Hampshire) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
