See Tony Smith knock the top off bass guitar! A true innovator, he has performed with Steve Morse, Average White Band, Grover Washington and Larry Carlton, to name but a few. In this incredible DVD, he takes viewers step-by-step through an array of his one-of-a-kind techniques. He demonstrates slap bass over a rock shuffle and shows hip-hop grooves using slap and pizzicato. He teaches his touch technique over a salsa groove and demonstrates a montuno with his left hand and the clavi with his right hand. The accompanying booklet includes notation and easy-to-follow diagrams that correspond exactly to the DVD. 30 minutes.

Comments about Hal Leonard Advanced Bass Grooves (DVD):
The instructor on the video knows what he's doing, but doesn't know how to convey the information to the student. The instructor also seems to "show off" more so than teach his advanced bass methods. I would also think about changing the name of this from Advanced Bass Methods to Alternative Bass Methods. He does however go over the pop and snap method of playing, which is good for funk and some jazz.
