Hey Groove Masters!
I have been a professional bass guitar and double bass player for well over twenty years.
I have been fortunate that my vocation has found me in many exciting situations: from recording at Abbey Road Studios to performing at Wembley Arena in London; playing West End & touring theatre shows, such as We Will Rock You, The Lion King, Spamalot & Dirty Dancing.
Now, thousands of gigs later, I love sharing the experience I've picked up from being at the coalface. Nothing I teach is academic or theoretical. It’s the stuff that I use on a day-to-day basis to earn a living playing the bass - and you can too!
My experience spans rock bands to symphony orchestras; theatre shows to functions; big bands to jazz clubs - and I’m proud to approach each one with the love it deserves.
I never know quite how to describe myself musically. I think the most accurate way to put it is that I’m a ‘commercial musician‘. That’s not to say everything I do is commercial, but I get the biggest kick out of doing exactly what you’d expect a bass player to do at the bottom end of a band. Helping bassists like you to do just that is exactly what I teach at eBassGuitar.com
As always...keep groovin' hard!
