Rock and Read.
Rock and Read is a book series written by Mike Nichols and I. It is a simple to use group of six songs for bass, guitar, keyboards and drums at a standard of Grades 1 to 2.
The Bass Book is available in an iPad app via iBass Magazine. http://www.ibassmag.com/
Each book contains six songs which range from Classic Rock style to a more Contemporary groove. The songs are laid out in an easy to read, logical manner using an industry standard, professional score programme. The aim of the books is to help students read stave notation. There is no ‘TAB’ in the guitar or bass books, just notation and chord cue above the stave.
To go along with the books is the audio content. You can download each track from the website and there are versions with each instrument and groups of instruments muted. You can download the tracks from the Rock and Read website here;
