I have recently published a free ebook to teach music students the first elements of the electric bass. It is designed as an introduction to my method “Bassista contemporaneo” and it’s been receiving very positive comments from many users. Therefore I have decided to translate it into English, so as to be able to help my bass followers from other countries!
You can download it from my website at this link: www.tizianozanotti.com/free-bass-book (you will have to enter you name and email, after all I need to be sure you are really interested and willing to use it… no time waste!!!).
Not a two-page leaflet with a couple of exercises, but 40 thick pages with 5 chapters + 22 mp3 files to play along. Free!
It is a very practical booklet which teaches you the main things you need to know to effectively approach the 4-string bass from scratch, enabling you to immediately put your hands on the instrument.
Of course these lessons have a very elementary level because their purpose is to gradually introduce you to the electric bass, but I am sure they will help you start in the correct way… playing your first bass lines from day 1.
Hope you enjoy it!
PS.1 Maybe you are not a bass player, but a friend of yours is instead. Tell them to visit this page because they might like it a lot!
PS.2 No need to tell you the music tracks can be used to play along with any instrument. If you are not a bassist but play something else, you can use them anyway (you see what I mean?).
PS.3 I am working to have Bassista Contemporaneo released in English by the end of 2015. Stay tuned!
