Hal Leonard

Get inside the head of this thrash-funk icon.

Flea's seriously funky bass sound and live-wire stage presence have made him one of the most influential bass players of his generation. In this DVD Flea and the Chili's slammin' drummer Chad Smith come together for an awesome rhythm section improvisation. Flea also talks about the theories, philosophies, styles, and techniques that have influenced the player he has become. A fascinating session with one of the hottest young talents on the scene. 55 minutes.

Features

  • 55 minute DVD
  • Live performance with drummer Chad Smith

Very disappointed!

Comments about Hal Leonard Flea (DVD):

If you want to know about Flea's influences, his life and watch him play with Chad Smith, then this would be a good buy for you. If you want to actually LEARN anything, forget it. It's unfortunate because I admire Flea and his playing ability, but this is not an instructional DVD.Waste of money.

a dvd for begginer bass players

Comments about Hal Leonard Flea (DVD):

before i start if you are a begginer and looking for a instructional video that will take you step by step on technique then dont buy this dvd! but if you want to learn about flea, and the way he learned and some advice from the master then please get this video!first off if you want to play bass then get this dvd! if any body wants to be a good bass player then they should study up on flea. this dvd does not give you a step by step walk through on how to play, but you will learn alot more. i guarantee that after you watch this dvd you will want to pick up that bass and jam!

its taught me a lot

Comments about Hal Leonard Flea (DVD):

I actually have a vhs tape of this. I have watched it probably over 200 times, and each time i learn a little bit more.First of all, you get some theory and philosophy on life in this video-theory and philosophy that I agree with and which made me respect flea all the more.Second of all, each time I watch the short jam sessions peppered (excuse the metaphor) throughout this video, I learn a little bit more--maybe how flea used the major third and minor third in his funk riff, even though the minor third "shouldn't" or "isn't" even in the scale.I learned how to slap from watching this video also. It's fun to do sometimes, especially when you want to go crazy and express your anger, fury, or excitement on the bass.Buy this video--I thought it was awesome, and I watched it on a messed-up vhs that has white scratches constantly across the screen.Peace and Love.

Worth watching....I guess

Comments about Hal Leonard Flea (DVD):

I bought this DVD hoping to get a bit of in depth explanation/explanation of Flea's unique technique. What I got was a lengthy interview with hosted by River Phoenix that kind of left me confused. The jam session clips with Chad Smith are the highlight of this DVD IMO.

in this dvd i have found that it has amazing bass lines and he jams with his drumer all the time through out the dvd but doesnt really show you how to play those cool stuff he might be the best bassist in the world but cant teach worth crap if your only in it for the bass things the cool tricks he does on the bass you should def. buy this dvd but if you more into learning how to do stuff buy another dvd its not worth the money...
