Alfred and the National Guitar Workshop introduce a new book for bassists guaranteed to push the limits, expand repertoire, and most important incorporate the 5th string, with 5-String Bass.
How low can you go?
5-String Bass stretches the boundaries of normal bass playing to give you notes that are needed for many styles of contemporary musicincluding gospel, Latin, funk, metal, and pop. This book teaches how to incorporate the 5th string into all these styles and more. Learn how the 5th string can open up new fingering options for a wider range of pitches. Opening your mind to these new possibilities is just a start; the bottom line of playing 5-string is playing notes you can really feel. All examples are notated in both standard music notation and TAB, and the included CD allows you to hear the examples and play along.
5-String Bass is now available as a book and CD set for $16.95.
