Advanced Techniques for Bass in Brazilian Music by Giberto de Syllos is a compendium for electric bass that explains in explicit detail how to play in authentic fashion music in the Brazilian choro, samba, and bossa nova styles. Special playing techniques and percussive effects are explained as well, and the book concludes with nine full-length performance pieces with recorded accompaniment tracks.
