About Bassline Publishing
Bassline Publishing was set up in 2005 by Stuart Clayton, an experienced bassist and writer who had previously written seven instructional titles for Sanctuary Publishing, including 100 Tips For Bass You Should Have Been Told, Bass Styles, and Giants Of Bass. The aim of the company is to publish top quality instructional titles for bass guitarists. These include the acclaimed book Ultimate Slap Bass, a complete beginner to advanced tutorial book, The Bass Player's Guide to Scales and Modes and The Bass Guitarist's Guide to Sight Reading. Bassline Publishing also publishes transcription books on several well-known bass guitarists such as Mark King, Stuart Hamm, John Entwistle, Bernard Edwards and Zander Zon.
Bassline Publishing also publishes ebooks for the Amazon Kindle and interactive books for the Apple iPad.
The Bassline Publishing website has recently been revamped to include an exclusive area for customers. By logging in, customers will have access to extra content for all of the books, including transcriptions, videos, interviews and lessons.
