Welcome to all and thanks for stopping by my website.

What’s new in my bass world…

I have a new Bass book coming out called "Shredding Bass" I'll tell you more about it when I return from Montana !

My book titled “Bass Style Resource” has recently been released. It covers lines in the styles of many great bassists in a variety of genres. It’s available through Amazon, Sheet Music Plus, and practically anywhere else music instructional books are sold. I hope you have fun with it.

I thought I’d post some pics of some great players I’ve had the opportunity to perform with on my home page. I’ll be updating frequently so hope you stop by often.

Give me a shout on talkbass.com. or drop an email.

In the meantime, I'm writing for a new record but also busy doing a lot of teaching.  I have not been hitting the road for gigs much in recent months due to some loved ones being ill and I'm staying over for a bit but will soon be out playing with my trio as well as other gigs. 



My latest bass book has been  released: “The Electric Bass Method Complete”. The book is actually a compilation of my three volume series “The Complete Electric Bassist (Beginning, Intermediate and Matering volumes)”, and is now available in one book containing saome new additional material. The book is 272 pages and is available from Amazon, Sheet Music Plus and all other places that my other ten bass publications are available through.

If you get one, let me know what you think of it.


Ron has built me two unbelievable basses.  I'll post pics in the copming days. 

You must check Ron out.  He is a true craftsman in building instruments.

My latest book, Total Funk Bassist has just been released and is available in all music stores as well as Amazon and many other bookstores. Border Books has followed Bailey’s Bookstores by taking on a few of my books.  I do find that Bailey’s sells more of the catalogue.

I am really excited about this book.  Lots of Funk lines, both pizzicato and slap & pop with some double thumbing, double popping, and an adequate amount of theory in terms of learning how to create funk bass lines. 
you can now purchase any of the tunes off of my 2 Hot to Touch CD from Amazon.com. You can purchase tunes individually or get the entire CD.  

A recent book of mine, the Total Jazz Bassist, which I co-authored with good friend Tim Ferguson, is doing very well. Recently there was a great review of the book in a Bass Guitar Magazine and it has been well received by other publications. Thanks for checking the book out and keep the emails coming.
