The Worship Bass Book: Bass, Espresso, and the Art of Groove

"The Worship Bass Book is a fun, informal, and extremely practical resource for bassists playing in a team setting. The material is presented in a way that is easy to understand, accessible, and powerfully insightful. Acclaimed bassist and music educator Norm Stockton covers a broad range of topics in bite-size chunks, allowing players to emerge with solid and practical understanding of how to best function as an effective bassist in a rhythm section.

'As opposed to a comprehensive methodology for all things bass, this will be more of a collection of the nuggets - many of which were acquired through lessons learned the hard way - that I've found valuable for my own development as a bass player,' explains Stockton.

The Worship Bass Book also provides valuable instructions and helpful direction regarding bass techniques, musical concepts, and important relational considerations that will help ANY bass player thrive, inside or outside the worship realm.

'Much of the material is relevant to bass playing in any context, so if you're not a worship musician, welcome!' says Stockton.

Other topics included are musical phrasing, tools of the trade, fingerboard familiarity, musical styles, slap and tap techniques, bass and drum synergy, solo bass arranging, real-world groove lessons, a passion for the groove, and much more."

REVIEW from Bass Musician Magazine



NOTE from Norm: "I spent many months adapting this book from my curriculum (both Grooving DVD series &, as well as adding much new content (new chapters with new exercises, interviews, many updated video & audio clips, the Espresso Time & Let’s Grab Coffee installments, gear talk, and more! The feedback has been overwhelming and I hope you dig it, too!"
