The Bass Groove Survival Guide will indeed feed you for a lifetime. This extraordinary learning experience for bass players imparts a sense of groove without relying on technical explanations or tedious theory to work through. Rather, you will play your way through a series of 72 groove studies working with rhythm tracks and video playalongs across a wide variety of popular styles of music; Reggae, Shuffle, Country, Salsa, Samba, Bossa, R&B, Motown, Rock and Jazz. Learn to groove in these six styles and you’ll be able to step into any gig, do the job, and get invited back time and time again.
Throughout the entire course, Andrew illustrates how to make the lines ‘groove’ through the use of timing, rhythmic variation, tone, technique, note choice and use of space. While some of the lines might appear to be very simple to play, they are actually very challenging to play correctly and so Andrew stresses and demonstrates how to capture the subtleties of each groove. Learn the 54 bass lines and work through the 72 studies presented in the Bass Groove Survival Guide and you will be able to apply the key learning to any bass line, in any style of music. Groove on!
