In addition, numerous substitutional ideas are presented, which suggest many variations. Your desire to learn, willingness to practice and ability to perform has led you to the Guitar and Bass EncycloMedia - as essential as your instrument. New thoughts and ideas about 12 sounds, 21 symbols, and 15 major and minor keys need new names and labels. Therefore, I combined Guitar, Bass, Encyclo and Media in order to convey, "a quality communication of mind, using symbols recognized by the brain, and played on your guitar.
Its continued development has been brought about by the unending questions of students, who in effect, have taught me what they need to know! And guess what? It's been many years since the Guitar EncycloMedia was first published in the Bass EncycloMedia in , and the questions have not ended. In fact, it's the reason for the revised second edition of the Guitar EncycloMedia, which reflects those unending thoughts and ideas, and brings both the GEM and the BEM into the 21st Century.
Thank you one and all! Hundreds of pages have been revised, and there are many changes throughout the 2nd edition GEM. However, three very important differences from the 1st edition GEM stand out: 1. All chord grids show horizontal strings and vertical frets, "a players point of view. All chord grids except page 2 show tone patterns scale degrees instead of finger patterns. Form circle-six three replaces form circle-six four.
Circle-six three is a "whole" chord form, whereas circle-six four is but a "fragment" of circle-six three. Of course all these enhancements have been incorporated into the 1st edition BEM The FastTable table of contents makes locating any chord, scale, arpeggio, song or important idea fast and easy, and an additional Index makes finding their location even faster and easier. There are 42 songs in both the Guitar and Bass EncycloMedia, and they are presented in a progressive order from simple to complex.
They are also arranged alphabetically for quick location. Congratulations once again, you are taking a very important step in your development as a musician playing the guitar or bass!

Help with Bass Encyclomedia
Yes, you're a bass player, but you're more than just a bass player, you're a musician, thinking and speaking the language of music that you then apply to the bass, thus becoming a student of the bass. Bass EncycloMedia is based on the premise that music is a language. If you knew the music alphabet of 12 Sounds and 21 letters and tone numbers on your bass, you could spell any chord, scale, or arpeggio, and then combine them to play any song in any style. So, where does music begin? Like most languages, with an alphabet.
