SIGHT READING FOR THE BASS

by Ron Velosky

This is the definitive work on developing the skills of reading written notation and translating it into music on the bass. Starting from a very basic level, Ron Velosky guides students (and their instructors) through a process of skill building that is particularly effective at developing the ability to read and play bass guitar notation. Highly recommended.

New Jersey-based guitarist B.D. Lenz writes tightly arranged charts in a fusion style reminiscent of Larry Carlton, Lee Ritenour, and Mike Stern. Containing elements of funk, R&B, rock, and Latin, Lenz's music is palatable but not especially distinctive. His solos, however, are fluid and interesting; his tone is clean and full bodied. And his band is on the money. Geoff Mattoon contributes strong tenor and soprano sax work throughout. Keyboardist Daniel Mintseris, electric bassist James Rosocha, and drummer Tom Cottone are the other core players. Making guest appearances are acoustic bassist Ron Velosky, drummers Brendan Buckley and Greg Federico, and percussionist Joe Mekler. Some of the highlights include Rosocha's bass solo on "Lazy Bones," Lenz's ferocious solo on "Grandma Rosocha," and the 5/4 riffs of "Primitive." ~ David R. Adler, Rovi

Ben started playing bass when he was 14 because some of his friends needed a bass player for their band. He ended up selling most of his record collection and baseball cards so that he could buy a bass. After a few months of attempting to learn the instrument on his own, he talked his parents into getting him bass lessons. Over the next few years Ben stuck with the bass and turned it into more than just a hobby – studying music in college with his mentor, bass teacher Ron Velosky. After college, Ben met his rhythm section counterpart, Dan Quill. They played in three bands together before they met up with Nora.
