Dave LaRue: Creative Force Complete
Alfred's Artist Series
Dave LaRue is one of today's leading bassists, recording and touring with the Steve Morse Band and Dixie Dregs for nearly 20 years. His incredible technique and finesse of the bass make him the first-call for well-known artists, and he has also established himself as a regular columnist for Bass Player magazine, touring clinician, and adjunct professor at Florida's Stetson University.
In this DVD, Dave gets viewers started with warm-ups, stretching, and arpeggio fingering exercises. He lets loose with some of his hip funk lines using hammer-ons, slapped, popped, and ghost notes, and a complete lesson of modes. In addition, he demonstrates how to use rhythmic variations and polyphonic ideas to expand soloing techniques. Follow along at home with note-for-note transcription of each exercise, in both standard notation and TAB,using the printable PDF companion booklet included. Bonus features include a lesson from Victor Wooten and a performance by Jaco Pastorius and John Scofield.
