for anyone who so far never had the chance or time to pick up that thing with the four strings, that most bands seem to like or need next to your drummer, in case you know what i am talking about; those two players in the back are often referred to as the 'rhythm section'.
In this class, I go back to the pure beginnings of playing bass guitar. This includes the right way to hold it with both hands, the positioning with your body, and the right mindset to start practicing.
My own teacher plays with the likes of Snowy White, Walter Trout, Dana Fuchs, Roger Waters etc. and is one of Europe's most hired bass men.
I am lucky to have a good memory of how he started me up, and I will try as hard as I can to reproduce that experience.
Of course there is room for interaction - ask all you ever wanted to know about playing bass.
Your teacher, me, started playing guitar about 34 years ago, and bass about 30 years back, first in the smaller towns of Nijmegen and Tilburg, after that in Amsterdam, where I had my own jam session after four years sitting in with all that the dam had to offer musically. Ten years ago I started the Freewheelers Cello Band, together with Ilene McHolland who plays cello, and sings. With this band we tour in Europe and the US.
