The Bass Guitarist’s Guide to Reading Music The Bass Guitarist’s Guide to Reading Music: Beginner Level is the first in a series of three books that will teach you everything you need to know in order to be able to successfully read music on the bass guitar. Starting with the absolute basics, the fundamental elements of music notation are introduced one at a time, with all concepts reinforced with written and audio examples. Rhythms and pitches are covered gradually, with all chapters containing ten exercises focusing specifically on each new element. More complex aspects of notation such as time signatures, key signatures and navigation are also introduced to a basic level. The final part of the book contains ten ‘real world’ play-along tracks recorded with a full band. Audio files for all exercises are embedded on the same page as the relevant exercise.
