John Entwistle - Bass Guitar Master Class
John Entwistle Bass Guitar Master Class download free. The Who's legendary John Entwistle gives a personal bass lesson that covers fingering, licks, octave style, chords, hammer-ons, pull-offs, picking techniques, harmonics, soloing concepts, walking bass lines, string-bending, and phrasing - all in the famous Entwistle style. Here is a unique chance to learn from the man who wrote the book when it comes to rock 'n' roll electric bass. You'll never miss a note!
John Entwistle demonstrates bass solo and rhythmic techniques by himself, and then jams with lead guitarist Arlen Roth, who questions The Ox further on his approach to bass. This gives viewers the chance to focus on Entwistle's bass playing without having to strain to hear it through the deluge (as John described it) of The Who's power chords, drum assaults and slinky synthesizers. Entwistle emerges as an unselfish innovator who was willing to share his skills with others. His deadpan wit quietly perks up the proceedings as well.
Not so great as a beginning lesson, but outstanding for Entwistle fans. It's a fascinating inside look by the master himself. It was made during the "slap" craze and he reminds us that there are alternatives to slapping, which is kind of interesting historically as well. This DVD is useful, interesting and collectable. Better buy it if you like Entwistle. It was transferred from VHS video, so it ain't high-def. Highly recommended for Entwistle fans, beginners should find a primer instead.
