Alongside teaching, one my greatest loves is playing live. If you’re not playing live yet I urge you to join a band, jam with friends, do whatever you can to get playing with other musicians as it will turbo charge your progression as a musician and bass player.
One thing you have to take into consideration when playing with a band is where to stand within the ensemble. This is forgotten about by many bass players and other musicians and is a BIG mistake.
In this video tutorial I’m going to tell you exactly where you should be standing on your gigs and why.
As always, see you in the shed!
