Percussive Acoustic Bass is a technique enabling you to play both rhythmic percussive parts and melody or bass parts simultaneously. The hollow body of an acoustic bass instrument gives you the ability to create percussive sounds otherwise not possible with an electric bass.
Dmitry Lisenko’s Percussive Acoustic Bass curriculum demonstrates the most common approaches and techniques used to perform percussive-style acoustic bass.
”This course will be beneficial for musicians of any level, starting from complete beginners to most advanced players. You'll need an acoustic bass to fully benefit from the course, but many techniques and tips can be applied on electric bass as well. Also, it's an incredible way of exploring your bass at home, for solo playing, covering songs arrangements, and just for the joy of playing! It will open a whole new dimension in your composing and change your understanding of the rhythm section.”
Dmitry Lisenko has performed across Europe and recently released a solo album of original compositions. He’s won several bass guitar competitions, including the 2015 Russian Bass Player Competition, and has appeared at festivals like the London Bass Guitar Show, Bass Day St. Petersburg, Bazzday 2016 in Moscow, and the Warwick Bass Camp.
