Pablo Elorza Publishes “El Cuerdita: The Language of the Instrument”
Bassist and educator Pablo Elorza has added a new volume to his library of instructional books with El Cuerdita: The Language of the Instrument. The book is made to build your chops by focusing on the development of music’s building blocks – scales, arpeggios, chords, and harmonics – with visuals of vertical, diagonal, and horizontal positions.
“In each one of these orientations, there is a different concept and direction that helps to control and increase our technique on the instrument in different musical situations,” Elorza adds. “Also included is the method of study developed throughout the years that has been tested by countless numbers of students and furthermore by myself which has demonstrated its efficacy and practicality through the results it has produced.”
El Cuerdita is written in both English and Spanish. The package includes 37 audio examples recorded in HD. Elorza also wrote an expansion section that applies the material to five and six-string basses.
