Mark Epstein Bass Book

Mark Epstein has recently (2002)released a bass tablature book called: "The Blues Bass Handbook"

Reviews: Instead of progressive harmony and fancy licks, blues bass playing is all about creating a great feel and locking it in. This book/CD pack teaches classic blues bass lines, as well as how to create your own. Once you know the bass lines, the author shows you how to apply them to different blues styles, covering topics such as: the 12-bar blues, the 1-3-5 theme, shuffle vs. walking bass, box patterns, tone, turnarounds and more. You'll find everything you need to be jamming blues bass in no time.

For years, I've tried to figure out those simple but great-sounding blues bass lines from the records of Albert King or Johnny Winter. This book just lays them all out plain and simple, and has a very good quality CD to play along in various blues styles and tempi. It also has a very nice section on a wide range of turnarounds. If you're a beginner, you can play along to the slower tracks right away, and even if you've been playing a while, it's a great feeling to lock into the tight grooves on the CD. Highly recommended to all blues fans.
