Oscar Stagnaro – The Latin Bass Book
Apr 24 2015
This is a practical, comprehensive approach to learning Afro-Cuban, Brazilian and South American styles of bass playing, featuring 3 CDs of Berklee professor Oscar Stagnaro playing with three different world-class rhythm sections. The book consists mostly of transcriptions of every note Oscar plays on the accompanying CDs. Some amazing music, and logically progressing from simple to complex examples of each style.
The only comprehensive book ever published on how to play bass in authentic Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, Caribbean, Latin Jazz & South American styles. Written in the language of the working jazz musician, this book is easy to read and user-friendly. At the same time, it is the most comprehensive study of jazz harmony and theory ever published. Over 250 pages of transcriptions of Oscar Stagnaro playing each exercise. Learn from the best!
It comes with no tab, but the first bass lines are simple enough so it wouldn’t be a bad place to start reading, and once you understand the beats and where the bassline falls, you should be in a good position to read almost anything!
The book takes you to a series of concepts that become more complex from track to track in a well thought way, so you build on your understanding of the subject. Probably the hardest part is to keep yourself from dancing while you play along to the CDs.
