This book/CD set teaches the basics of country bass playing in a fun, "quick access" format, In a minimum amount of time, you will learn the bass part to 22 popular traditional songs including train songs ("New River Train"), gospel standards ("Amazing Grace"), Waltzes ("Knoxville Girl"), bluegrass songs ("Don" t Let Your Deal Go Down"), country blues ("Corrine, Corrina") and more. All bass parts are written in both tablature and standard notation exactly as played on the companion CD. Extra lyrics are provided for singers. This stereo CD enables you to "sit in" with a country band that includes a singer, rhythm guitar and bass. To facilitate learning, each of the 22 songs is performed at two tempos: moderate and "slowpoke." The stereo format allows you to hear the bass guitar clearly isolated on the right speaker. ©2006, Book & CD, 60 pages.
