Note Reading Studies for Bass (Book)
by Arnold Evans
This book was written for bassists who wish to learn to read music as well as for those who wish to sharpen their music reading skills. The studies in the book progress from beginning to professional levels and represent a variety of styles that modern bassists are likely to encounter in real-world musical situations. For those conversant in music's universal language, a whole world of musical styles, ideas, and sounds is always available. This book aims to sharpen the skills of serious student bass players so that they may partake of this endless stream of ideas, information, and inspiration. Standard notation only. None of the exercises in this book contain fingering indications. This omission was made in order to make these exercises useful to players of all types of bass instruments, both electric and acoustic. The author strongly recommends that students work through this book with the supervision of a qualified teacher. If you are a professional musician the author hopes this book will help you stay in top sight-reading form, giving you an edge in a highly competitive market. If you are a novice bassist, this book will help you hone your skills in becoming a skilled professional.
