SKILLS: WHAT IS THE BASS COMPETENCE? (excerpt from book)

Keep on learning bass! As I promised, here’s more stuff from “An Introduction To Bass” (read previous article “Functions: what is the bass for?” here). This is the largest section, and my favorite one. Check out an intro and a piece from it – “Rhythm / dynamics“. I am a graduated pedagogue, so I like to analyse, classify, and teach. The chapter shows it pretty good))

Don’t forget that I’m not a native English speaker. I’m always open to your corrections and suggestions via email 🙂 So, here we go!

Double album review: Immortalized (Disturbed) + Got Your Six (FFDP)

August of 2015 is cool!  I’m going to review two new albums – Immortalized (Disturbed) and Got Your Six (Five Finger Death Punch).

My thoughts have been changing for last days, but hope, now I am as impartial as possible… Of course, it’s impossible, because I love those bands))
