John Patitucci received worldwide acclaim for his fluid, horn-influenced work on the six-string electric bass. A member of Chick Corea's Elektric and Akoustic Bands, John also has three solo albums to his credit. The first, entitled John Patitucci, reached #1 on the Billboard jazz chart and earned him two grammy nominations.
Electric Bass is a complete guide to grooving with a drummer in 15 styles, including funk, samba, reggae, jazz, shuffle, baiao, Latin, and rock. John provides examples in each style and discusses major influences and variations. Includes an extensive discussion/ demonstration of technique (on the four-string bass).
In Electric Bass, John offers insight into soloing by stressing the importance of ear-training. He takes some of the mystery out of the six-string bass by showing how it is tuned, its amazing range, and by offering many examples of its applications. Includes performances of John's compositions plus a live clip with the Chick Corea Elektric Band.
