This book series is designed to gradually enhance three essential components of the modern bassist – speed, accuracy and technique. Regardless of the musical genre that you are exploring, whether it be jazz, blues, rock, metal, country or otherwise, these three categories should all be in harmony to allow you to play your best. The exercises contained within this series will not only train the fingers of your fretting hand, but will also enhance your picking techniques and create synonymous movement between the two. Speed, Accuracy & Technique for Bass: Level 1 is a great book for beginner bassists. The book begins with a few fundamental quarter note picking exercises and then works toward building independence between the fingers of the fretting hand, ensuring that all four fingers are equally utilized. Before too long, the techniques of finger rolls, string switching, string skipping, slides, hammer-ons and pull-offs are all introduced. By the end of this book, you will be playing at more than 2x the speed from which you started, have a high level of finger and picking accuracy, and have solid control of the most essential bass techniques.
