Hello and thanks for stopping by my site. I have to say, it’s been awhile. Who breaks their leg not once but twice? Well, I did. Took a fall down the stairs and there went the right femur.
In any case, that put a hold on a few projects such as the new trio I have formed with Brian Leary on keys. Really looking forward to getting that project going for this summer.
I haven’t posted since before I had the great summer and performed at the Crown of the Continent Guitar Festival. Had the chance to play a little with Mike Stern. That was not the first time but just as great and thrilling.
I’m up and running in another couple of weeks and will post some additional recent info. Thanks for stopping by! -Dave
LATEST BASS BOOK!
"Shredding Bass Guitar" is slightly different than my other books in that it is not directed toward jazz or fusion bass audiences and players but rather rockers and funkers and even yes, metal bassists. I’m really proud of the book. It does have some cool stuff in it and does lean towards some kind of advanced slap and pop, double thumbing, some tapping, and techniques used by Wooten, Miller, Stanley Clarke etc…. Lot’s of dexterity types of things that will require some fast playing but the book helps get you there. I hope you enjoy it!!
