THE VIRTUOSO BASSIST – EBOOK/PDF VERSION
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.
