Bruno Chaza, nota note for bass players

This is the new method from Welty Editions. It introduces bass players to a variety of musical styles by presenting note-for-note transcriptions of selected pieces. Nota note for bass players focuses on the music of Brian Nova, jazz guitarist from Seattle. We chose the most intimate ensemble there is: the trio. This method illustrates the playing styles that a studio bassist can develop.

This book is appropriate for students who are already familiar with reading music, as well as those who strive to reach this level. In order to provide students with accessible transcriptions, the electric bass parts have been simplified. Use the CD in the following manner: First, tracks 1-5 are the original recording of the trio (with Bruno Chaza on bass) that we will find in the method.. Next, tracks 6-10 feature the same pieces, but without the bass part. You should try to reproduce the parts written in this volume, but also construct your own version by reading the chord patterns.

The CD was recorded in Sun Valley, Idaho and by Phil at Wake the Dead Studio in Lalbenque 46 France. This disc was made possible by the perseverance and professionalism of Bruno Bouchegnies in Seattle, and we would like to thank him for his admirable efficiency. Thanks also to contrabassists Dan 0' Brien and Buddy Catlet who were the great inspiration for the bass lines in this method. Special thanks to the guitarist Brian Nova for his talent and his trust in us. Another thanks to the drummer Greg Williamson, and to Ponyboy Records, who have a terrific catalogue of jazz from the Northwest region of the US. Finally, on the web you can hear the irreplaceable French touch of the excellent Bruno Chaza, who is the author of two other methods available very soon, Keys of Bass and Words of Bass.
