100 Jazz Lessons: Bass Lesson Goldmine Series

Hal Leonard presents an unusual layout for a lesson book: one-hundred lessons relating to jazz bass that are two pages long each.

The intention is for the reader to choose lessons at will. And rather than a liner progression of lessons, these are laid out to discover as you see fit.

Matthew contributed fifty of the one-hundred lessons, and his topics range from soloing with upper-structure triads and getting a good sound to playing in odd meters and practicing a two-feel.
