Book Cover 1A Workbook for Jazz Bass Players
Second Edition (Part 2)
by Bill Harrison

Now available for purchase as a PDF download.

Price: $20.00

A Workbook for Jazz Bass Players challenges you to deepen your technical, theoretical and musical skills to go beyond being just a "functional" bass player. This book covers the harmonic language that is used primarily by jazz musicians — modal, diminished, whole tone and melodic minor. We will study chord progressions found in "standard" compositions and in the traditional jazz repertoire. Once again, this book is not a stand-alone bass method or textbook but rather a companion workbook to the material we will work on in your private lessons.
