Bass Lessons

My life has always included music - I started playing piano at age 4 and I've been playing electric bass and singing for over 30 years, starting with Southern Culture on the Skids in 1983. Since then I've been lucky enough to do all kinds of gigs with all kinds of folks, and I've learned something at every one of those shows.  I play Jazz, Funk, Rock, Country, and pretty much any other style of music you can name. 

 

Bass is truly the heart of any band that makes people dance. Ask any Beauty Operator! When the bass player is doing a great job, you shake your booty. If the bass suddenly stops, the groove dies. Using my years of experience, I'll teach you how to play in the pocket, how to work with your drummer/rhythm section, and how to use the space between the notes you play as much as the notes themselves. Playing bass well with a great rhythm section is truly one of the best feelings in the world.
