Jason Raso’s Soloing on Electric Bass: A Chord Tone Approachprovides the next step following his first book for Mel Bay Publications, Improvising on Electric Bass. The primary focus of this second book is to help you develop a more melodic approach to solo bass playing. The author suggests avoiding root notes, concentrating instead on chord tones of a 3rd, 5th, and 7th as fertile ground to begin revising your approach to more creative soloing. Following a series of standard notation exercises exploring intervals and goal notes in all keys, Jason presents a dozen original solo etudes in notation and tablature.
