So what are they?

 

I know I have seen some disappointments as well as some good ones. How about you?

 

I can definitively recommend all of Bill Dickens Contemporary Bass series. An Abraham Laboriel's Bass an Beyond.

 

I am interested in Norm Stockton's stuf Has any body seen 'em?

 

I was extremelly disappointed at Fleas'

I am glad I didn't even buy that one...

For slap, many swear by the Alexis Sklarevski tapes, while a guy I know has the Marcus Miller tape learned backwards, I think.

I have seen tapes for everything from "fingerstyle jazz" to "flamenco electric riffs for improvisation". Do you have any particular discipline in mind?

 

One of my faves is the "Jeff Berlin-Electric Bass"

tape. Late 80's, early 90's, lots of professional wrestling references. I have learned much from this tape, but many would scoff at Berlin's name, for whatever reason.

Or professional wrestling references, for that matter.

Perhaps specifying a type of playing or technique would direct the answers you get. Just a thought.

 

Peace,

scoff scoff scoff. i've seen that tape. in fact, wraub showed it to me. lots of "holy carpal tunnel, batman! look at what this ron jeremy impersonater can do to a bass!" not too sure of the instructional value. but i did learn that jeff berlin is pompous and masturbatory.
Eeeeeehhhhhhhhh.

I told you some would scoff. Hey, I learned part of my slap technique from that tape, and while slap can be a rather onanistic pastime, the more you do it the better at it you get. :)

 

And the chordal version of "Yankee Doodle/Dixie" is rather impressive, don't you agree, Chauncey?

 

Peace,

LOL! :thu:

The best thing I liked about that video was the cameo by Roddy Piper (sp?) :rolleyes:

I have no homepage.
