4-Note Melodic Cells
(Detailed 9-page Mini eBook)
There are so many different improvisational concepts, but the one that’s rarely taught, which is arguably the most ubiquitous is 4-note Melodic Cells.
In this book, Hubbard will take you through four different 4-note melodic cells and show you how to add ‘Rhythmic Treatment’ to these cells, as well as show you how these are applied over different chord changes. The process discussed outlines how to take a simple melodic idea and then shape that idea with a myriad of improvisational possibilities. The culmination of the book will show you how to write your own bass solo using these ideas over a well-known jazz standard. This concept has been widely used by all the great jazz players including Keith Jarrett, Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Herbie Hancock.

One of the most prolific upright bass players in the history of jazz is Ron Carter. From Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard, Herbie Hancock and so many more, Ron Carter sets the standard for creating some of the hardest swinging bass lines in the business! You’ll learn how Ron Carter constructs his bass lines to enhance the melodic content of his lines!

Jaco Did This!
A closely guarded secret to Jaco Pastorius’s bass playing was his concept of using rhythm- specifically where he would take 3, 4 and 5-note patterns and group them into different rhythmic subdivisions to create an unpredictable sound. This concept is one of the defining factors of Jaco’s uniqueness as the world’s greatest bass player. So many bass players do not really employ a methodology for understanding how to manipulate the rhythmic character of their lines. In this mini eBook, bass educator Joe Hubbard explains this concept with a detailed ‘note-by-note’ analysis that accompanies his popular YouTube video lesson, “Jaco Did This!” All the musical examples are written in standard notation and in tablature.
