Quick Overview

New York City bassist and teacher Patrick Pfeiffer has created a regimen that will teach the developing bassist how to become truly great, through practice, discipline, and perseverance. But who said it has to be boring? Daily Grooves for Bass is jam-packed with a different groove for every day of the year – and these funky, hip, and inspiring exercises will get newcomers reading and playing grooves worthy of any bassist's repertoire. Bassists can forget the "chore" of trudging through a typical exercise book, as grooves are limited to one or two measures and then repeat, just like bass grooves in real playing situations. Players can capture the musical flow of each groove, try them out in their own bands, make them their own, and enjoy riding their "groove-waves"! Daily Grooves for Bass is written in standard notation, with TAB files available on the included CD, which also contains all of the grooves in MP3 format. For intermediate to advanced players.
