Jason Raso’s Soloing on Electric Bass: A Chord Tone Approach provides the next step following his first book for Mel Bay Publications, Improvising on Electric Bass (MLB4694).
 
The primary focus of this second book is to help you develop a more melodic approach to solo bass playing. The author suggests avoiding root notes, concentrating instead on chord tones of a 3rd, 5th, and 7th as fertile ground to begin revising your approach to more creative soloing. Following a series of standard notation exercises exploring intervals and goal notes in all keys, Jason presents a dozen original solo etudes in notation and tablature. ©2020, 52 pages
