Disturbed Bassist John Moyer Releases Instructional DVD
Playing bass is much like playing guitar in the respect that there are a number of different approaches you can use to shape the sound of your playing. John Moyer offers a unique look at the techniques he employs while providing the low-end for Disturbed and Adrenaline Mob in the new instructional DVD ‘Modern Metal Bass’ from Hal Leonard and Rock House.
Aspiring bassists will learn how to blend simple playing techniques like hammer-ons, pull-offs, and slides with more complex maneuvers to “create a sound that cuts through.” Moyer, who recorded special backing tracks to assist the learning process, will also provide insight on how he composes bass lines for his songs.
Disturbed announced that they were going on indefinite hiatus last year, prior to releasing a collection of B-Sides called ‘The Lost Children.’ Moyer recently joined ex-Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy in the band Adrenaline Mob, who will release their debut album ‘Omerta’ on March 13.
