BASS WORKSHOP

Solos are great, but bass lines are melodies, too!

How to create melodic, lyrical and supportive bass lines.
  • This workshop focuses on the creation of harmonically supportive, lyrical, melodic bass lines.
  • The fundementals of harmony and scales are covered as well as some transcriptions of the “Masters” bass melodies from the 1920’s to present.
  • This is a very interactive thinking, listening and performing clinic.

Bring your basses, or instruments (we are equal opportunity!) and let’s compose educated, spontaneous bass melodies that will swing that small group, or big band.
