Grammy® Award winning bassist Mike Inez has played for Alice In Chains, Ozzy Osbourne, Heart, Black Label Society and Slash’s Snakepit. In his IMV “Behind the Player” DVD, Inez gives an intimate behind-the scenes look at his life as a professional musician – including rare photos and video footage.
Inez then gives in-depth bass lessons for how to play “A Little Bitter” and “Again” by Alice In Chains and jams the tracks with The Cult’s drummer John Tempesta. VideoTab™ shows exactly how the musician plays the two tracks. The video-game-style animated tablature is similar to GuitarHero™, but shows how to play the tracks for real.
The producers of the IMV series donate $.25 from the sale of each DVD to Little Kids Rock (www.littlekidsrock.org), an organization that gets instruments in the hands of underprivileged kids.
