The Art of solo bass

Michael Dimin literally wrote the book on the art of the solo bassist. Through his groundbreaking books, “The Art of Solo Bass” (Mel Bay) and "The Chordal Approach” and his work as a lesson columnist for Bass Sessions (Mel Bay webzine), Bass Guitar Magazine (UK), Bassics, Bass Frontiers Magazines and as a guest columnist for Bass Player Magazine, Mike has brought the concept of solo bass to the fore. Talkbass.com columnist, Max Valentino said of Mike, "Above it all he is a supreme musician, with a singular, unique voice on his instrument.” Mike has taken his revolutionary approach, unparalleled technique and mastery of the instrument and combined it with a sense of musicianship, lyricism and beauty that transcends the site of a solo bassist on stage. Cliff Engel of basically.net states that, “Michael Dimin has elevated the standards in the field of bass artistry. Look out!” Greg Haymes of the Albany Times Union states, “Dimin is in full command of an instrument that gets the spotlight all too rarely.”
