Bass Lessons at The SoundLab
The bass player is the crucial link between rhythm and melody. A good bass player will lock in with the drummer while also providing the harmonic foundation for the rest of the band to soar over. A great bass player will know when to step forward and grab the spotlight with a crushing riff or ridiculously over-the-top solo, then slip right back into the rhythmic pocket. Bass lessons at The Soundlab can help you become the bass god you were meant to be, whether your dream is to play like is Billy Sheehan, Green Day’s Mike Dirnt, Aussie jazz phenom Tal Wilkenfeld, Rush’s Geddy Lee, Prince’s funkstress Ida Nielsen or …nah we’re not gonna say the Seinfeld theme. (That was really played on a keyboard).
Why Do I Need Bass Lessons?
Bass is all about locking in. You need to lock in with the drums, which means identifying which elements of a drum part to sync your playing with. You need to connect with the guitars or keys, which means knowing which notes will work with what they’re playing and which ones will class. You need to be aware of what the vocalist is doing so you can support their melodies and maybe add a little extra flourish in between lines. And you need to understand tone, so your overall sound fits properly with the rest of the band. This is the kind of stuff you really need an experienced teacher to guide you through so you learn constructive musical concepts and the right technical habits from the very beginning.
