Hello and thanks for stopping by!

It's been awhile since I have made any revisions to my site and I aplogize for that.

Let me mention a few things that are new in my bass world.

My most recent book published by Alfred Music Publishing is titled "Shredding Electric Bass" and was released a couple of months ago. For this book I focused on great Rock Bass lines using some of the modern electric bass techniques such as tapping, double thumbing and other techniques that are used by some of todays great bassists. It was especially enjoyable to record the soundtrack to this book done at Colin Tilton's (sax and flute player on Van Morrison's Moondace record) Bar None Studio in Northford CT. I even got the pick out for a chapter in this book, revisited my days of first playing the bass whenI loved everything Chris Squire ofthe group Yes was doing and he was a huge influence on me at the time. One of the pieces I did with a pick in the book is "Flight Of The Bumblebee". That was a trip! A shout out to my friend Kurt Berglund for playing drums on the book soundtrack.

On another note, "Zero Proof" is a new band I recently co-founded. We are just putting the project together and in the very near future information about this group, future recrdings and performance dates will be posted.I'm really excieed bout this group as the players playing with me are brillian and wondeful musicians. The music is seems almost boundless to a particular genre but undeniably persuasive and potent rhythm section playing is the foundation of the great journeies that the music takes you. Recordings soon to be released.



"Shredding Bass Guitar" is slightly different than my other books in that it is intended for bassists of many different genres to enjoy and not just rock bassists. Some of the advanced techniques in this book will certainly give intermediate and advanced players material that will challenges them regardless of the style of player they may be.

Check the book out and let me know what you think.

I hope you enjoy it!!

I want to put in a word for my man Ron Blake, founder of Ron Blake Guitars. He recently built for me to of the most amazing basses I have ever played. If you think you may be interested in a custom bass Ron Blake is your guy. I played Fodera but I decided to go with Ron and I am so happy that I did. The instruments he built for me are TAmazing Stuff!

Go to the Dave's Gear page to check out the wonderful bass creations by Ron Blake.
