Conversations Bass Booklet contains the bass parts derived from the compositions of the homonymous album by Alain Caron.

Conversations represent a turning point in Caron’s artistic life because it marks a change from the first albums of his solo career: in Conversations in fact he prefers duets, an intimate form of conversations with some of his musician friends with whom he has collaborated in the past.

A very introspective album played exclusively with the acoustic bass, an instrument in which Alain Caron has proven to be a true master.  

Essential Components of Conversations Bass Booklet

  • Bass partsThe music for bass is written in standard notation.
  • Chord Symbols. The defining, characteristic component of sheet music is its chord symbols. A chord symbol defines the current harmonic region, as a key signature, and it stays in effect until the chord changes. Chord symbols are set above the staff, centred over the beat where the new harmonic region begins.
  • Tempo, Styles, Clef, Key and Time SignaturesThese provide a basic orientation for the musician.
  • Bass partsThe music for bass is written in standard notation.
  • Roadmaps, Repeats, and Arrangement Directions. To keep the scores concise, multiple passes through a section are indicated with repeat signs, multiple ending systems, codas, segnos, and the like. Rehearsal letters or names for different sections (Intro, Verse, Chorus, etc.), are further clarified with double bar lines. Text indications such as “4X” or “Vamp Out” shed light on the form or arrangement.
  • Slash Notation. Time slashes (////) with chord symbols written above indicate solo sections. Charts exclusively for rhythm section players might feature slash notation throughout with no written melody.
  • Ensemble NotationCritical instrumental hooks, ensemble rhythmic concepts (stop time, or kicks), and repeated licks (often for the bass) might appear in notation in temporary second staff.
