'Improvising Bass Guitar is a very useful tool for all players regardless of playing ability and experience. The CDs are full backing tracks without any bass so you can play along and work on new ideas as much as you like in your own time. The instruction books give clear guides as to how to achieve the best results and how to understand the way that written music works. They also feature the use of the Guitarograph, a visual aid that incorporates tablature, traditional notation and fingerboard diagrams at the same time, a system that's unique to the Registry of Guitar Tutors. Together with the CD, each package offers loads of tuition, help and ideas for improvisation in a vast range of styles and as such will be of immense use to all bass players. All of us at Bassist have found it very useful and lots of fun and recommend it highly.' (Bassist Magazine) 'I am always an enthusiastic reader of any new popular music tutorial publication and I am impressed with Improvising Bass Guitar which is available in three volumes, Early Stages, Intermediate Level and Advanced Level. Early Stages lives up to its promise in that it provides the beginner with enough information to allow him/her to develop bass line creation skills using simple harmonic structures in avariety of learning methods which The Registry of Guitar Tutors describe as Guitarographs using tablature, notation and fret diagrams. Once the comprehensive, yet accessible, descriptions of bass line construction (with the necessary theory) have been absorbed by the student, he/she can put newly developed skills into action by playing along with the accompanying CD. I must compliment the quality of the CD which comes with each volume. They are well recorded and pertinent to the plethora of current popular music styles which have a legacy dating back through three decades. Both Intermediate Level and Advanced Level provide a great deal of information and are excellent teaching aides. Any teacher or student using them will enjoy their benefits and the pleasure of inventing bass lines alongside the recorded backing tracks. These books go a lot further than most other publications: they are on to a winner.' (Musician)
