A good bass player should be able to comfortably play in almost any style of music in almost any given situation. The goal of this book is to reveal the vast world of different musical styles that may be encountered during the lifetime of a bass player. Each chapter begins with a small history of the musical style. Knowing how each of these styles is related can improve playing by way of borrowing grooves and ideas from one to the other. The groove book is designed not only to teach you how to play these different styles, but also how to enjoy playing them. Written in standard notation only. Includes access to online audio.
