    i have say, AMAZING BOOK.

    condenses all i've ever learned about COMMON PRACTICE, JAZZ HARMONY and BASS CHORDING (and then a ton more) all in one easy to read book!

    DAMN MIKE!

    Milestone in educational publishing.

    its a dis-service to yourself NOT to own this book!!!!

  10. Hi Mike,

    Just out of interest, are you ever going to do a Chordal Approach instructional video one day? It would really be something to actually see you play stuff like Autumn Leaves or Shadow of Your Smile and teach others how to do it.

    Currently I am finishing up Vol 2 - The Art of Solo Bass (working title) that will be out on Mel Bay. The video is great idea - I have the gear and the video guy - there are issues with license, however

  15. Hi Mike,

    It's such a great coincidence that your brand of bass guitar has the same initials as your own name!!!

    It's a bummer that you've got to battle the legal suff out. I've heard that a magazine won't let you reproduce your own solo arrangement of 'Shadow of Your Smile' because they apparently own the rights to the sheet music. I've also read that you couldn't reproduce your Autumn Leaves arrangement within your first book because the song's publisher won't let you.

    That's pretty far out man.
     
  16. Is Mel Bay also interested in publishing your first book as well since it was a hit? I'm sure that with your current status, surely a major music publisher will think twice about not wanting to have anything to do with your book because its 'solo bass' related.

    That is not true - Bassics Magazine is very cool. There are not nor have there ever been an issue about The Shadow of Your Smile. In fact, it will appear in the New book. I wish I knew wher that rumor started - it is just not true

    That is true, sort of. The company that administers the publishing rights to Autumn Leaves holds their "property" very tightly. It is almost impossible to get publishing license if you are not affiliated with their company. In fact they also administer all Beatles music - I have a really pretty arrangement of "Yesterday" that I wanted to put in the book - ah - no luck with that.

    The new book will have a good overview of The Chordal Approach, plus solo arrangements and some multiple bass/loop arrangements.
