This is the centerpiece of the Ron Carter Library. (He refers to it as "THE book" when talking to his students)
While other bass lesson books teach you arco techniques and how to audition for a classical orchestra, this book is completely different.
It shows you how the bass functions, and the hand positions and locations on the instrument so you can find those beautiful notes too. And it has QR codes that link to video demos so you can watch the Maestro play the exercises himself.
With this book you can do what Carter does every night. Play rhythm changes all the time, make wonderful blues choruses, or in the Maestro's case, play Little Waltz for 25 years. And have it be new and fresh every time.
