I just discovered this “book”, dedicated to teaching you how to play the uBass. It’s called “U-BASS.ICS: A Simple Guide To Playing Ukulele Bass” and its available from Ukulele Central.
I’m not sure how old it is, or even if it’s any good, because I don’t have one in hand to review.
Anyway, heres’ the info from the web site:
The UBASSics ePack is an all-in-one ukulele bass lesson guide for beginners and ‘just started’ UBass players up to intermediate level.
The ePack is a PDF which contains not only text, diagrams and tabbed exercises but video demonstrations and audio backing tracks to play along with, all in the one document!
This is a highly practical guide that caters to your learning style whether you like to study the details or launch straight in using your ears and eyes.
The book costs $24. You get videos, audio and TABs for your money. It’s basically a PDF and associated audio, text and video files. The whole thing is a 35Mb download.
The price seems a bit high, but it may be worth the price depending on the quality of the information.
Still, it’s nice to know there are some books out there about the uBass.
