Regardless of genre, the universal truths of being a great bassist are great rhythm, great feel, and great note choices to create a strong foundation. Even if you have aspirations of being a great soloist, that alone isn't enough without having your musical fundamentals and groove essentials covered. My goal is to help you find your path to developing these skills, developing an awareness and familiarity with the history of styles, players, and great bass lines, and unlocking ability to play whatever it is you want to play. I consider it my purpose as your teacher to facilitate, aid, and guide your self-directed study; you will set your own course, and I will help you discover what, and more importantly how to practice, to achieve your goals.
