  1. I didn't know you could remove the tab in the digital version - good to know. I'd rather the tab wasn't there, but it's the only way to recover costs these days.
  2. They are. I've only done two so far, but will take on them all, I'm sure.
  3. Cheers, lowdown. Your kid must be good if he can play these pieces.
  4. And that is on a three-string bass, as played by Bottesini.
  5. I really love these studies by John Patitucci. You have to keep counting in your head, and keep your foot tapping - great fun. Being based on C Melodic Minor, this could also be played over an Am7b5 chord. The bass is new to me, from Bass Direct for half price - a bargain. Stock flat wound strings, and going through a Phil Jones Double 4. Anyone else playing these studies? A black and white bass deserves a b&w video...
  6. Thankfully I'm fluent in both languages - standard and tab - but every day am thankful I put the time in to learn to read standard notation. Keep it up!
  7. Hi guys. Thanks for all the positive comments on this book, which does seem to be doing well at Mel Bay. Any questions, just ask.
  8. Ah, I hadn't thought about the availability of strings...
  9. Thanks for the comments, folks. First thing would be get a tech to check the wiring, as maybe the pups are good enough. I love the neck on this thing, and have Rotosound Black Nylon strings on - great dead sound!
  10. Here's a picture of the model I have. I love this Dead On 58 bass, but the volume and tone nobs do absolutely nothing - clearly the wiring needs looked at. That got me thinking that while I'm at it I might upgrade the pickups, possibly bridge and tuners too. Any suggestions for all of this?
