BASS SOLOS EN CLAVE - EBOOK/PDF VERSION

click to see more

No reviews

Bass Solos en Clave was born as a result of the mixture of Caribbean rhythms and the American jazz. When we combine the jazz repertoire with the Latin rhythms, we combine them with the clave and we create a salsa blues, a Latin jazz, a clave jazz or what ever you want to call it, and this combination creates an energetic, flavored and contagious fusion that makes you vibrate from head to toe with the rhythms in clave and the improvisation.

Bass Solos en Clave takes 10 classic Jazz standards, and provides a solo to each, giving an excellent example of a solo played through the changes of that arrangement, applied to a clave rhythm. Written in standard notation and TAB. Audio tracks are in MP3 format. Each MP3 has the Bass on the left channel and accompaniment is on the right, so if you want to play along, just pan it to the right and have no bass. 29 pages.

MASTERING THE BASS

No reviews

Comprehensive study on the artistry of being a bassist.
To become a master requires a total devotion to learning that craft. A master is someone who has strong, consistent skills and executes them perfectly with only the effort required to do so. This mastery requires experience and practice. When the question is asked, 'how much should I practice?' the correct answer is, 'until you have mastered what you're working on.' This book is designed to give the student a thorough, gradual study of obtainable musical goals including a strong rhythmic foundation upon which bass playing must be built. That is the reason for the great number of short repeated grooves and vamps as well as a myriad of open string and first position studies. The intention is not to limit the player to the low positions but to insure the mastery of the bass register as well as all other registers of the instrument and introduce a wide range of musical examples. Some music requires an entire lifetime of practice. Being a Master does not mean that the Master need not practice anymore. One should always try to improve and learn new music. This is the example true Masters set for others to follow. When a musical example, (simple or difficult), is mastered by a student, there is a tremendous sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. With each mastered piece comes more fulfillment. Good luck, work hard and have fun mastering the bass !
