The Three Tonic System by David C. Gross…
Having been fascinated by the John Coltrane tune “Giant Steps” for years, David decided to take a serious look at his Three Tonic System and create a book of patterns that will take readers through the chord changes using arpeggios starting to the root, 3rd, 5th and 7th degrees.
All of his previous Bass Guitar books were written with bass tablature and because he feels tab is really doing a disservice to bassists and it is just as “easy” or “hard” to learn to read music, he wanted this particular book to be music notation and music notation period. When he started rereading this manuscript David realized that without tab, this book would be great for anyone who played a bass clef instrument.
