Came with an Electric Bass practice book "Electric Bass Lines"

This album contains practice material for all 47 Bass Lines in the book, including "How To Sight Read Boogaloo"...

This is the first of three LP's: all are identical except for colour: 'Electric Bass" (Green), "No.1" (Yellow) and "No. 2" (Pink). By No.2, Gwyn Publishing appears to be have been incorporated into Warner Bros Publications. There are Electric Bass practice books up to No.6; It is unconfirmed if these had accompanying LP releases or not; if Glyn Publications had been bought out and incorporated into WB Publishing then probably unlikely.

"The Electric Bass sounds better if it is a little sharp rather than a little flat or even exactly in tune.
Always double check your tuning harmonically on 5th and 7th frets". (Carol Kaye)

Recorded in Hollywood. Gwyn Publishing Co., P.O. Box 5900, Sherman Oaks, California 91413.

    Does anyone need the booklet for this? My copy of the record is rough, but the booklet is in very good condition

      Great record, but my copy has horrendous background noise, even after cleaning, I mean as if my washing machine was running next to the record player. Can anyone confirm if this is the case with other copies? Maybe very low-budget pressing...
