Advanced Bass Guitar: Craft and Creativity

Ryan Foglesong

A competent bassist understands how harmony, melody and rhythm can enrich even the simplest of arrangements. To that end, this seminar will cover techniques such as open and closed chord voicings, counterpoint, scales, modes, and inversions. Of course, the challenge every musician faces is how to take technical skill and apply it in a way that is appropriate and thrilling in the context of a song. So we’ll also focus on creativity that communicates and enhances the lyrics of the songs we sing.
