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.

    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

    Great strings! Double check your scale length before ordering..

    Elixir's are amazing strings. I have always used them on my electric and acoustic guitars but this was my first set of Elixir bass strings, and they are awesome. They sound great (maybe a little less bright than non-coated strings, but I like that) and feel really great too. You can slide along the strings easier, and they make less string noise which is great for recording.One small note, I purchased the Light Long Scale 5-string set, and they are great but I realized afterwards I made a rookie mistake because I have an extra-long scale bass (Peavey Grind Bass 5 NTB). So on the low B and E strings, the taper of the string (when it starts to get thinner so you can wrap it around the tuning posts) actually starts before the nut. This makes it so the strings sit a little low in the nut.It seems Elixir doesn't actually sell sets of extra-long scale 5-string bass strings, but they do offer them if you buy the 4 string set and add a single lower B-string. Just... 5/5 Charles E. Williams (Washington, DC) - See all my reviews, October 15, 2016

    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.
