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.

    Best bass strings you could buy on the market!

    5/5 Maria Miller - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Rotosound RS66LF Swing Bass 66 Stainless Steel Bass Guitar Strings (45 65 85 105) (Electronics) These are possibly the best strings I've played yet! Really bright tone and heavy on the punch to the tone!I've been playing bass for 2 years and have pretty much gotten obsessed with it now! Swapping from my previous set of D'Addario EXL165s for these and sound beautiful! However when i put them on myself, I wound the D and G string backwards, so to tune it I have to go in the same direction as the E and A strings. FFS -.-Just be aware that these strings are a bit hard on your fingers, so if your fingers aren't built up enough to play these kinds of strings, then these won't be for you. But if so, go for it! They're high quality stainless steel, bright tone, amazing feel, and Rotosounds are used by a lot of famous bassists, such as John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin, Geddy Lee of Rush, John Entwislte of the Who, Chris Squire of Yes, and many more!

    Great sound for those looking for a Rock tone.

    4/5 SP (New York, NY) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Rotosound RS66LF Swing Bass 66 Stainless Steel Bass Guitar Strings (45 65 85 105) (Electronics) I'm a fan of these strings. Bass strings tend to last quite a while, and some players even like the sound of worn strings, so most players do not change them as often as they should. When you do change the strings, though, you hear the difference. These strings seemed to bring out some more midrange and treble that my P-bass was lacking.Now, these strings may not be for everyone. They work well for me in my bands and recordings, most of which are in an alternative rock style. I noticed a little more string noise, but, truthfully, I haven't changed strings in a while, so it can be chalked up to playing with older strings. For those looking for silky smooth bass, or just increased bass response, I would suggest looking elsewhere. For a rock sound, these are great.

    Incredible tone, good quality

    5/5 Braxton Schafer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Rotosound RS66LF Swing Bass 66 Stainless Steel Bass Guitar Strings (45 65 85 105) (Electronics) Wow. That's the best description of these strings. I've been playing bass for about 5 years, owned 3 different basses with a wide variety of (mostly cheap) strings. My new P-Bass MIM needed new strings, so I splurged and bought these.The tone is fantastic. It stands out. I've seen other reviewers describe it as "piano wire-like" and I would agree with that. They just have a fantastic, twangy, deep sound. It's perfect for funk, metal, and slap bass. It REALLY stands out, so if you're a bassist looking to be seen and not heard, these may not be for you.These are by far the best strings I've owned (or played for that matter) and would definitely recommend these to anybody or buy them again. I've had them on my bass for a few months and the tone has also stayed pretty consistent too. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 1, 2015

    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.
