Ukulele Bass Manual with DVD
Code MB30058DP
by Martin Schroeder and Liselotte Schell

This ukulele bass handbook offers a theoretical introduction to the development of the instrument and its maintenance, stringing and care. Discover the secret of the "UBass": how can such a small instrument make a sound that deep? Co-author Martin "Bassmati" Schroeder put the Kala UBass to the acid test and lets us take part in his experiences in studio and live recordings. The theoretical part is followed by tunes, bass lines, songs and catchy grooves to help you to learn. Cajon and UBass fit together really well, so we included simple band scores for guitar, cajon and UBass to show you how a true rhythm section grooves.
