Have a bass, know the strings names and how to tune it. At this point you’re almost ready for a paying gig! Ability to read music is helpful but not required.
Style: Old time jam, dance band, bluegrass, Western swing
In this course you’ll learn how to be appreciated when in a jam and someone yells out “Hey does anybody know how to play bass? I’ve got an old one in the garden shed.” We’ll learn the fundamentals of good bass playing, how to avoid being the bass player nobody asks back, and how to survive when someone kicks off a fast swing tune. If time allows we’ll also learn how to take the dreaded solo break and come out smiling.
