MARK MICHELL'S GUIDE TO RIGHT-HAND TECHNIQUE FOR BASS

No reviews

Excerpt from Mark's book
My vision for this instructional book is to simply shed light and share my knowledge regarding plucking-hand technique, which is sometimes an afterthought to many players. I find many players focus so much on what the left hand is doing as it determines the musical qualities of your playing, but many forget about the hand that produces the sound. Without proper sound, your music simply cannot be heard! Many players are content with learning to produce a sound with the plucking hand, and will then stop there and look no further. This usually results in negligence over time to the proper development of the plucking hand, and can become an obstacle in your playing many years later.

All exercises are written for 4-string basses, but can be applied and adjusted for basses with additional strings. Techniques covered in this book can be utilized for most all common styles and genres of music. This book contains 143 total pages, 120+ exercises, a full-color gloss front cover and spiral bounding, which is most convenient for allowing the book to stay spread open on stands and flat surfaces!

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.

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).
