ENDORSEMENTS
"The Picking Hand Grimoirium is a very thorough and comprehensive catalog of exercises that should be highly beneficial for anyone looking for a great picking/plucking workout. Any fans of Michael Manring's exercises involving permutations will dig it, hugely!"
Norm Stockton

Additional notes from the author:
By using this method, it insures complete picking-hand development before adding the fretting hand. Since the exercises are "micro" picking-hand movements only, detailed attention can be placed on technique, tempo, rhythm, dynamics and consistent string attack for optimum picking-hand development. The exercises can and should be applied to ALL picking techniques that the musician chooses in their form of expression such as free strokes, rest strokes, alternate picking, economy picking, hybrid picking, finger picking, tremolos, slapping, double thumping, plucking, etc. As the musician progresses through the various exercises, new picking patterns will be encountered that could aid the musician in composing new and unique ideas. The permutations in the Picking Hand Grimoirium were created by computer program developed by the author. This insures that all permutations of strings and notes-per-strings are included. The Grimoirium also includes a chart of rhythms and MIDI files of the rhythms that can be applied to the exercises. The rhythms are grouped into three and four divisions of a beat or triplets and sixteenth notes. And to track your progress, a copy of The Picking Hand Grimoirium Log Chart is also included. I would like to note that the Picking Hand Grimoirium concentrates on one specific aspect of musicianship, the picking hand and its development. To become a well rounded musician with the ability to express oneself completely, all aspects of musicianship are required in one's development and should not be neglected. Also, the exercises in the Grimoirium can be considered non-musical. We must look past the exercises, since they are non-musical, to see the rewards that we may reap after the picking hand is developed and offers no physical limitations for one's expression.

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

50 MODAL SLAP BASS WORKOUTS
This 5 1/2 by 8" QWIKGUIDE was created for the bassist who has mastered the basics of slap bass and wants to expand his or her skills. Many of this book's examples were written to fine tune individual string control -- the ability to thumb or pop on any string at any time. Individual string control is one of the most common weaknesses with slap bass students. Some of this book's examples are common fingerstyle workouts that are arranged for slapping. Developing the ability to slap finger style bass lines gives the bassist an amazing skill. This book covers some very advanced slap techniques, including triple pops and the flamenco thumb technique. Written in tablature only for the four-string bass. Includes audio CD. 48 pages." Our Price: US$7.95
