Bassists are a unique type of musician, unlike any other.
The role a bassist plays is to support the entire foundation of a musical ensemble. The quality of the emotional content of a piece of music is a direct result of how effective the bass part is in supporting the lyric, the melody and the rhythm of the piece.
This site is dedicated to providing information and resources for anyone interested in learning about the art of playing bass.
Here is a poster for a show I have in May at the famous Grant's Lounge in Macon, Georgia. This is a show with the Skydogs, (a nickname for Duane Allman) featuring Brent Sibley, Travis Posey, Dan Hockner and Jimmy Henderson.
Check out Grant's Lounge on the Web. It is the birthplace of Southern Rock!
About the Skydogs:
Travis and Dan are part of an original band from Alabama called "The Dozens".
Jimmy recorded with Johnny Shines (Robert Johnson's partner).
Brent has organized and produced the event "Jam for Duane" in Birmingham, AL.
