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. The Electric Bass book (with CD) features detailed transcriptions of the material John plays on his DCI video of the same name. In addition to each of the transcribed exercises are a transcription of Bach Cello Suite No.1 in G Major and John's compositions Searching, Finding and Kingston blues. Electric Bass focuses on three topics: technique (on four-string bass: scales/arpeggios, picking exercises, hammer on/pull off, etc.), time/groove playing featuring dave Weckl on the CD, and ethnic grooves, including Latin, Brazilian, reagge, and African styles.
