When playing in any live or studio situation eye contact between band members is of critical importance and can be the difference between a great gig, and a total train wreck. This is the BIG difference between professional musicians and hobbyists… the professionals are always tuned into what’s going on within the band and there communication with each other is excellent. In this lesson I’m going to give some great tips of how to get this into the bands and ensembles you already play with so you can use it immediately.
Grab you’re bass and get in the shed! Scott
