Dave LaRue is one of today�s leading bassists, recording and touring with the Steve Morse Band and Dixie Dregs for nearly 20 years. His incredible technique and finesse of the bass make him the first-call for well-known artists, and he has also established himself as a regular columnist for Bass Player magazine, touring clinician, and adjunct professor at Florida�s Stetson University.

In this DVD, Dave gets viewers started with warm-ups, stretching, and arpeggio fingering exercises. He lets loose with some of his hip funk lines using hammer-ons, slapped, popped, and ghost notes, and a complete lesson of modes. In addition, he demonstrates how to use rhythmic variations and polyphonic ideas to expand soloing techniques. Follow along at home with note-for-note transcription of each exercise, in both standard notation and TAB, using the printable PDF companion booklet included. Bonus features include a lesson from Victor Wooten and a performance by Jaco Pastorius and John Scofield.
