This electronic download of Bass Guitar For Dummies (Windows) from eMedia Music features over 70 lessons and over 30 videos for a fast and easy way to learn the basics of bass guitar playing. Some of the topics teacher and bassist John Arbo delivers include how to: tune the bass, read bass tabs and notes, play bass scales, and master common bass parts.
Interactive feedback technologies, like the Note and Finger Tracker, make learning the bass faster and fun, especially with bass lessons that use popular songs. Music tracking highlights notes as they are played, and variable speed MIDI tracks allow you to slow down songs for detailed practicing. Bass-only audio and no-bass tracks aid in understanding how parts fit together.
