SIGHT READING PRACTICE MATERIAL FOR BASS – EBOOK/PDF VERSION… Every bass player who reads music eventually has the same question, “I know the basics. Now what?” This book aims to answer it. Specifically, there are two objectives:
1) Help readers become ready to read anything. Given this goal, the exercises are written in various keys, times, and styles. For reference, the book is broken up into four chapters: quarters, eighths, sixteenths, and triplets.
2) Provide tons of reading material. When I wanted to improve reading, I quickly ran into a problem: I’d buy a reading book with great explanations, but only one or two examples to work on the concept! I felt if I spent 15 or 20 dollars, there ought to be lots of actual reading material. In this book, there are 50 full pages of exercises. I felt that explanations and guidance are readily available via the Internet, books, etc. What’s needed is plentiful, helpful, affordable content. Written in standard notation only (no TAB). 54 pages.
