Here’s the video of Pino Palladino Sight Reading Etude 3 – this is a 16th note ballad line on changes made famous by Jeff Beck with a tune that Stevie Wonder wrote. This is a 22 bar etude – the first 16 bars are ‘verse’ style content (with space left for say a sax to play the melody) and then the last 8 bars are a solo. I wanted to make the solo longer but the etude would have been longer than 1 page!
The bass line was generated in Band In A Box using a custom style created by me. That’s part of the bonus package that goes with my latest book 80-20 Bass: Pino Palladino Style Grooves.
