A complete guide to grooving!
Both the Electric Bass and Electric Bass 2 videos in DVD format. Electric Bass is a complete guide to grooving with a drummer in 15 styles, including funk, samba, reggae, jazz, shuffle, baiao, Latin, and rock. John provides examples in each style and discusses major influences and variations. Includes an extensive discussion/ demonstration of technique (on the four-string bass). (85 min.) In Electric Bass 2, John offers insight into soloing by stressing the importance of ear-training.
