CLASSIC FUNK AND R&B GROOVES FOR BASS

click to see more
click to see more

7 Reviews

101 examples of Funk and R&B lines. There are no 'exercises,' only actual bass grooves. Classic Funk and R&B Grooves does cover techniques and concepts, including the use of muted (ghost) notes, string raking, vibrato, syncopation, and the use of non-scalar intervals such as octaves and dominant sevenths. Instead of putting these to work in drills, though, the player goes straight into grooving. Call it instruction by osmosis, if you will, but bear in mind that the great funk bassists learned to play this way. If you study enough vocabulary, and use it in a real setting, you learn the language. Every bass groove you find here was played and recorded first in real-time jams with living, breathing drummers, then transcribed later. By contrast, most instruction books are written first, and the musical examples are played to a drum machine. It’s critical to the spirit of this book/CD package that live drums are used throughout, and you’ll feel the difference from the first track. Written in standard notation and TAB. 36 pages.

FUNKIFYING THE CLAVE: AFRO-CUBAN GROOVES FOR BASS AND DRUMS

click to see more

2 Reviews

Funkifying the Clave: Afro-Cuban Grooves For Bass and Drums attempts to provide drummers and bass players with an understanding of the application of Afro-Cuban rhythms to contemporary jazz, funk, and rock. We decided that the project should be a joint bass and drum book because the key to understanding and executing these types of feels comes from each player's awareness of what the other is doing. In seeing how both parts work together, it is possible to develop a feel for the particular rhythmic relationship that occurs in this type of music, thus enabling you to 'funkify' your own grooves. Includes 2 audio CDs, where each song is available as a full band, without the drum tracks, and minus the bass tracks for you to play along with. Also includes complete breakdown analysis of the drum and bass guitar examples. Written in standard notation and TAB. Includes audio CD. 64 pages.

THE VIRTUOSO BASSIST – EBOOK/PDF VERSION

1 Reviews

As an electric, acoustic bassist and composer, I believe technique is the channel for us to express feelings and musical ideas on the bass. I've came across many artistic bass players who compose amazing music, but their limited techniques inhibit them from creating the precise sounds they envisioned on their instrument, which prevents them from taking their music to the fullest potential. On the journey to improve my technique on bass, I noticed that accomplished bassists such as Jaco Pastorius and John Patitucci had been known to practice with Bach pieces. I started experimenting with Bach's styles, especially his cello suites, and I immediately saw that combinations derived from his melodic lines provide wider, deeper opportunities for improvements than pure mechanical exercises. They also enabled me to realize a more melodic approach toward music. Throughout my career I've been exposed to a variety of styles, ranging from Classical, Jazz, R&B, and Middle Eastern, and Bach's cello suites have always the foundation of my technique and musicality. They are the inspiration for me to compose etudes for fellow electric and acoustic bassists, for me to share Baroque's magic. In this book, all the etudes are written to maximize electric and acoustic bassist ability specifically. I hope that as you practice with the etudes you will not only build on technique but also gain a stronger sense of musicality. In this book, I present you the way to become a bass virtuoso. Written in standard notation (no TAB). 30 Pages and 14 MP3 files.
