The Blues in 12 keys

“This book had a lot more information and was way more advanced than I expected. It’s the most comprehensive jazz bass book I’ve found to date. I’ve been working out of several books for the last year or so, but this is going to be my focus for the foreseeable future. I will definitely be getting the others in the series..”

Standard Lines

“An excellent book that focuses on learning by playing the changes and internalizing the patterns. Steven Mooney presents you with the basics of how to play through ii-V7s, or diminished chords, or some other topic, and then gives you plenty of exercises that feature the patterns and cadences the bass player will actually encounter in playing through the standards. Working through Mooney’s books on the blues, rhythm changes, and standards is a great way to learn to play jazz bass.”
Rhythm Changes in 12 keys

“I have worked with literally over twenty different method books and Steven Mooney’s approach is definitely the best of the best that I have worked with. It is very player friendly throughout and it is masterfully crafted! In addition to a lifetime’s work going into creating these books more importantly is the willingness to patiently share this knowledge with others that makes all the difference and Steven should be very, very proud of that accomplishment.”

Walking Bass Lines for Guitar

“Many guitarists have tried to incorporate walking bass lines in their comping and solo playing, perhaps emulating Joe Pass. It’s not a style for beginners, but it can be developed with patience and the method found in this book. The first section is a guide to how bass lines are constructed beneath 3-note shell voicings, gradually adding more devices. The rest of the book has transcriptions of the author’s playing — different for each key — featuring standard blues (including Bird blues), blues with a bridge, and minor blues. There are audio files for all the examples, which can be downloaded from the author’s web site. It is noteworthy that the author is also a jazz bassist, with several books about playing bass.”
