Coming Soon


With the New Year almost upon us, we're going to be re-starting a feature from the old TR site, and hopefully expanding it to include even more interesting topics!


You might remember the series, called KNOW YOUR MUSIC, where we took a specific topic within the world of music, and explored it with a little depth. Not always BASS related, KNOW YOUR MUSIC, could be anything from aspects of sight-reading to techniques for Conductors or Composers.


Stay tuned!


Also, we have some great practice material from ROY VOGT himself coming up. We hope 2019 will be a very BASSY New Year!

  • From the Archives: Our friend, Jon Liebman, at FOR BASS PLAYERS ONLY , recommends having a look at this bass player. I'm glad I always listen to Jon's advice...You will be, too! A beautiful instrument, beautifully played! Remarkable. Thanks for sharing Elmeaux and Jon! Ed. Oh My :::: I am so much in awe that a bass can be played like that, absolutely beautiful. Thanks for the link, I am saving it for more viewings. Senior Member Richard (barricwiley) Very nice! Bassix Senior Member He says in his posts that he uses D'Addario piccolo bass strings. Very light guage, which is why the bass sounds so fair and gentle Elmeaux Senior Editor It's amazing that a bass guitar is responsible for that sweet and gentle sound. Indeed, beautifully played. Greg Jewell Senior Member Wow! That just blew me away. I will definitely be checking out his debut album on iTunes. Thanks Elmeaux for posting this.
