Dmitry Lisenko has been wowing No Treble readers for the past few years with his impressive acoustic bass guitar playing. Now he’s sharing his technique in a new video course called Percussive Fingerstyle on Acoustic Bass.
The bassist’s unique style of playing incorporates lots of percussion on the body of the bass to fill out the song. “By understanding the core concept you will be able to replace whole rhythm section in acoustic concerts, acting as a bass player and drummer at the same time,” the course description reads. “Also it’s an incredible way of exploring your bass at home, for solo playing, cover songs arrangements and just for the joy of playing! It’s open a whole new dimension in you composition thinking and rhythm section understanding.”
The course spans an hour and a half with lessons on muted string hits, percussion, percussive slap, chords & intervals, tapping, harmonics, and putting them all together for a song. Check out the video trailer:
