Quick Overview

The complete guide to playing the Bass Guitar from one of the great masters of the instrument, this is the modern “how to” book bass guitar players have been waiting for. Noel Redding’s years as the bass guitarist for the Jimi Hendrix Experience put him at the forefront of the rock explosion of the 1960’s, and his style revolutionized bass playing and propelled the instrument toward a degree of freedom not heard of before. This book, which includes a demonstration CD narrated by Noel Redding, covers all the basics of electric bass playing including tuning, musical rudiments, open strings, basic positions and different “licks” from Blues and Do-Wop to Hard Rock. The book includes a warm appreciation of Redding’s significance by Paul McCartney. No method on the market today provides a better introduction to modern bass guitar than the Noel Redding Bass Guitar Method.
