Jason Raso’s Soloing on Electric Bass: A Chord Tone Approach provides the next step following his first book for Mel Bay Publications, Improvising on Electric Bass. The primary focus of this second book is to help you develop a more melodic approach to solo bass playing. The author suggests avoiding root notes, concentrating instead on chord tones of a 3rd, 5th, and 7th as fertile ground to begin revising your approach to more creative soloing. Following a series of standard notation exercises exploring intervals and goal notes in all keys, Jason presents a dozen original solo etudes in notation and tablature.
Jason has been teaching bass guitar for 25 years. He teaches a wide variety of styles including jazz, funk, rock and blues. Jason is also well versed in several techniques including slap and pop, tapping and palm muting. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced player, Jason can help you reach your musical goals.
The Skype lesson rate is $40 per hour.
