Playing Tips

A Passion for the Groove

"....I've nothing against flashy bass playing; I enjoy bass pyrotechnics as much as the next bassist, and my CD collection has a healthy representation from the "Bass-In-Your-Face" contingent!

All of the preceding was simply to say that I want to encourage you, if you don't already have a passion for the groove...to develop and nurture a passion for the groove. Getting right in there with the drummer and locking down a really solid great feel...is the most fulfilling musical experience a bassist can have, and the thing that other musicians pursue in a bass player."
