As a kid, Freekbass
dreamed of becoming a magician who could pull off mind-blowing tricks and captivate audiences. As it
turns out, he has accomplished just that, though instead of using a deck of cards or a magic wand,
Freekbass's weapon of mass entertainment is the bass guitar. A verifiable funk and electronica master inspired by the likes
of Zapp and Midnight Star, Freekbass has created his own brand and style that can only be described
by his name. He loves to explore new places with the bass, and that's exactly what 50 Freekbass

Licks You MUST Know not only covers totally new techniques, but also expands and evolves on some of
the more common ones. All aspects of bass playing are covered, with emphasis on melody, rhythm, and
groove. Freekbass will also show you his take on single-thumb techniques, double-thumb techniques,
other finger techniques, hard-mute bounces, trampoline thumb techniques, thumping and plucking, sock
hops, struts, chromatic runs, hammer ons, pulloffs, percussive hand mutes, and much more.
No one is better suited than Freekbass to help you expand your
bass-playing horizons. He has studied the classics of Larry Graham, Sly Stone, Stevie Wonder,
Parliament, and Bootsy. He's also released four full-length CDs, including the current "Junkyard
Waltz" which includes guest appearances by Phish bassist Mike Gordon, guitarist Buckethead, keyboard
wizard from P-Funk/Talking Heads Bernie Worrell, and is produced by funk-legend Bootsy Collins, who
also gave him his stage name. As if all of that wasn't enough, Freekbass also has plenty of
one-on-one teaching experience behind him and 2 other instructional DVDs.

freaked out--there's plenty of goodness in this course to complement the skill set of any bass
