Hal Leonard and The Rock House Method are releasing a new 2-DVD instructional video featuring David Ellefson. David Ellefson of Megadeth: Metal Bass covers the fundamentals of metal bass playing.
The first DVD covers the basics: how to hold the bass, hand positions and reading tablature. David also covers playing with a pick and fingers, how to mute, basic scales, exercises and alternate tunings.
The second DVD covers more riff-oriented bass lines, advanced chords, scales and metal bass techniques, including gallop, hammer-ons and pull-offs.
