This program has been designed to give the Beginning Bassist a solid foundation on which to build good technique and working repertoire that will fit in with informal Bluegrass Jam Sessions.

This book is in two sections: 'Exercises in Picking' and the 'Song Section'. If you are a complete beginner, then you will want to start at the beginning. If, on the other hand, you already know something about the Bass you can move directly into the Song Section.

The power of this program are the audio recordings, which presents the faster songs at a variety of slower tempos to build technique. The songs are arranged in Standard Bass Music Notation with Bass Guitar Tablature and Guitar chords.

Song List: Roll In My Sweet Baby’s Arms*, My Home’s Across The Blueridge Mountains*, Kentucky Waltz*, Feudin’ Five Strings, Cripple Creek, Blackberry Blossom, Wabash Cannon Ball*, Liza Jane, Georgiana Moon, Camptown Races and more (*Arrangement with vocals.)

Bass Christmas

The Holiday Season is a wonderful time for family and friends to be together. It is also a great opportunity to play music! That was the thought behind this series; playing Christmas Carols as a family or with friends.

The arrangements are cleverly arranged to match the complimentary books in this series: Mandolin Christmas, Banjo Christmas, Fiddle Christmas, Dobro Christmas and Guitar Christmas. You can mix and match any of the arrangements in many different combinations to create some very unique and entertaining Holiday Music and Caroling.

As an example, let’s say that you have a Guitar and Mandolin picker to jam with. You can split up the parts between the three of you. The Bass could play the lead, the Guitar part 2 and Mandolin part 3. For variety, you can switch these as you perform. The second time through the song, as an example, the Bass could switch to the backup, the Guitar to part 3 and the Mandolin could go to part 1. On the next repeat, switch the parts again! There are many possibilities.

Several play-along audio recordings have been prepared to give you and idea of how the arrangements sound with the instruments together and other recording mixes minus the individual instruments affording you the opportunity to fill in the missing parts. This book includes standard Bass music notation and Bass Guitar Tablature.

Song List: Angels We Have Heard On High Away in a Manger Christmas Hornpipe Coventry Carol Deck the Halls God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen Hark! The Herald Angels Sing Oh Come All Ye Faithful O, Holy Night Silent Night The First Noel (Nowell) We Wish You a Merry Christmas What Child is This?

You can hear the audio tracks on this page.
