Way more than just the bass-ics

Whatever you're playing -- funk, soul, rock, blues, country -- the bass is the heart of the band. Bassists provide a crucial part of driving force and funky framework that other members of any band work off. From John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin, to "The Pixies'' Kim Deal, to James Brown's favoured bassist, Jimmy Nolan, bass players have made big names for themselves and commanded respect throughout music history.

In Bass Guitar For Dummies, Patrick Pfeiffer -- who coached U2's Adam Clayton, among others -- is your friendly guide to laying down the low end. Starting from the beginning with what bass and accessories to buy, the book shows you everything from how to hold and position your instrument to how to read music and understand chords. You'll develop your skills step-by-step until you're confident playing your own solos and fills.

  • Sharpen skills with instructional audio and video
  • Discipline your play with exercises
  • Understand chords, scales, and octaves
  • Care for your instrument
Whether you're new to the bass or already well into the groove, Bass Guitar For Dummies gives you the thorough balance of theory and practice that distinguishes the titanic Hall of Famer from the just so-so.

P.S. If you think this book seems familiar, you're probably right. The Dummies team updated the cover and design to give the book a fresh feel, but the content is the same as the previous release of Bass Guitar For Dummies. The book you see here shouldn't be considered a new or updated product. But if you're in the mood to learn something new, check out some of our other books. We're always writing about new topics!
