As stated by Anthony Vitti on his newest title:
The concept for this book was very easy to come up with. The fact is that there just is not a lot of material out there for bass players to read in odd meters. A problem I think most players face, is the fact that you don't see certain meters very often. But, then you find yourself playing a show or recording a song and you are expected to be comfortable reading and playing in 7/8, 9/8, 5/4 or any number of odd meters. We spend most of our time playing in 4/4. Meters like 3/4, 6/8 & 12/8 are fairly common, but you still may not find yourself as comfortable feeling these times as you do 4/4.

The point of this book is to get you comfortable reading and feeling a variety of different time signatures. I have written the bass lines so that they are consistent, but have enough variation to keep you from memorizing lines. There are a variety of tempos and feels. You will see how I develop each line throughout an example. I will increase the rhythmic depth and many times, the technical difficulty in playing the line. If you read through these examples many times, I think you will start to feel a lot more comfortable about playing in odd meters. I am also providing drum grooves at two tempos that you can download. This way you will hear the feel I had in mind when writing the bass lines. 45 pages. Written in standard notation only (no TAB).

SIGHT READING FUNK RHYTHMS FOR ELECTRIC BASS

4 Reviews

This material is really stuff that I had written over time for me to practice my sight reading. I was trying to write material that would present myself with all conceivable combinations of 16th note rhythms. The problem with just writing exercises is that you quickly memorize the rhythms. To avoid this, I wrote the examples in a song like form. By this I mean there are obvious verse and chorus like sections. Just the way real songs are. The other thing I did was to put in just enough variation that you cannot memorize any of the examples. You will be hard pressed to find four measures that are the same. The book is not just complicated for the sake of being hard. The basslines all make sense. They sound like difficult R&B or Fusion style basslines. Music is written in standard notation only - no tab.

This is how this book evolved:
The teachers in the bass department at Berklee are so diverse stylistically, that I was able to compile a book of a great variety of styles, time signatures, key signatures and difficulties. The teachers’ names appear next to the examples. The name of the song is included if a bass line was written to a specific standard. The examples are loosely arranged from easiest to most difficult. Music is written in standard notation only - no tab.

This book focuses on developing the techniques of great Finger style bass players from the past and present. We all know names like Jaco Pastorius, Rocco Prestia, Jeff Berlin & James Jamerson. But did you ever really think about what made each of these players great? That's a tough thing to describe, but it's one of those things you know when you hear it.
Includes audio CD and written in standard notation only - no tab.

Those of you who are familiar with 'The Finger Funk Workbook Vol. 1' will know what to expect from this book. If you don't own Vol. 1, it doesn't make a difference. Of course you should get it, but the two books are not linked in any kind of order. This book is just more of the same of what people have been asking me for. 32 pages. Includes audio CD. Written in standard notation only (no TAB).

This book is written in the style that I like to teach. I have never been big on studying exercises. My book is filled with grooves, not exercises, but if you play the grooves, you will get the exercise. That's the way I always liked to learn to play. Show me how I'm going to use what I'm practicing! Includes audio CD. Written in standard notation only - no tab.
