Josh Cohen Publishes “Tapping Grooves: Vol 1”
If you’ve been following No Treble for a while, there’s a good chance you’ve seen videos of Josh Cohen playing some mind-bending bass tapping. (He also wrote a four-part series on tapping for us.) Now he’s released a transcription and play-along book on the subject for four, five, and six-string basses.
Tapping Grooves: Vol. 1 teaches you how to use the technique over 27 different examples of varying styles.
“These grooves are intended to show the modern bass player how to use tapping techniques to create multi-layered polyphonic grooves that emulate the sound of entire rhythm section,” the author explains. “Each of the grooves contained in this book comes with access to unique play-along recordings featuring both a sample of the groove and a drum/percussion track in which practice your own playing!”
The 61-page Tapping Grooves: Vol. 1 is available now through Amazon. Until you pick up your copy, check out Cohen performing Bach’s “Fugue No. 2 in C Minor”:
