60 Melodic Etudes Cover

This is another great bass learning material written by John Patitucci.   I basically learnt how to read bass clef from near nothing when I first started.  Each etude are very melodic and challenging, with tons of great licks everywhere.  Also highly recommended.

I was also lucky enough to get to work with Mr. John Patitucci in 2015 and told him that I'm still working on his book.

6th song on the book: John Patitucci's 60 melodic etudes, 54 more to go ...   Just went through the Db one with 5 flats on the staff.  Still very challenging, as I mostly memorized the song instead of sight reading it ...
