Grooving for Heaven, Volume 4: Pondering Bass Technique
From Bass Pyrotechnics to Art
By Norm Stockton
Bass Guitar DVD
Pondering Bass Technique, the acclaimed 4th volume of the Grooving for Heaven series, is solely dedicated to teaching the advanced techniques needed by the modern bassist. Instead of merely presenting a glossary of riffs, renowned bassist/clinician Norm Stockton demystifies these techniques so the committed bassist can assimilate them for the broadest possible range of artistic expression. Topics include slapping (intermediate to advanced); tapping (arpeggios, single-string, and variations); chording; chimes, thuds, and swells (a spectrum of tones); combining techniques; effects; and solo bass arranging.
