The workshop will focus on bass as an ensemble instrument and will be divided into 3 sections.
- Bass as a rhythm instrument: understanding the fundamentals of time keeping.
- “No one knows the chord until the bass player decides which note to play!”: understanding the concept of the “root note” ; knowing when to play it and when not to.
- What to play between the “root notes”: understanding the importance of scales and harmony theory in deciding which notes to play and not to play.
When it comes to improving your bass playing faster, nothing beats than actually getting out and playing with other musicians!
To get the most out of this workshop participants need have the fundamentals of playing bass, and know notes of the bass fret board and be comfortable playing. This is NOT a beginners workshop.
