Alfred Publishing has released three new instructional DVD and book sets, featuring instruction by Todd Johnson and Steve Bailey.
Todd Johnson breaks down the art of walking bass lines, beat theory, ear training, major and minor triads, and chromatic approaches in Walking Bass Line Module System, Volume 1: Triad Modules. Standard notation and TAB are included.
Once you finish Volume 1, you’ll be ready for Johnson’s Walking Bass Line Module System, Volume 2: Scale Modules. This volume includes major and minor ii-V-i progressions, modes, fingering systems, and other exercises.
Fretless guru Steve Bailey’s Fretless Bass focuses on exclusively on fretless bass topics including intonation, sliding, string blending, and fretless effects. Bailey demonstrates in both studio and live performance applications.
