Private Professional Bass Lessons Dublin
Date Listed 01/08/2017
The techniques I cover vary. Whether it's using the right hand finger style styles (two/three fingerstyle; Jaco Pastorius alternate fingering technique etc) or using a plectrum (which involves using different tones and percussive sounds generated using alternate picking) aswell as slap bass(learn to slap and pop corectly and effeciently). General right hand technique including comfortable positioning, the correct technique needed to keep good timing and resulting groove.
Left hand techniques include scales and excercises to lock in intonation and accuracy over time. Also you will be shown where and how these scales are used in a musical environment as well as how thirds, fifths, flattened sevenths, octaves etc affect the music in relation to the chord.
Using all these techniques in tandem will result in an advanced and able bass player ready to enter the musical world, be it a group/band environment or solo project.
All these techniques and lots more will be taught in an enjoyable and relaxed atmosphere with many examples used from some of the best players from around the world. Song structure is also very important to realise so I generally take a list of what bands you like and pick songs from these artists or similar artists. That way everyone’s happy and everyone has fun!
