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

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!
