I am a professional bassist and instructor in Chicago with over 20 years teaching experience.

The Minor Major Sound

Being bass players, we are often renegades of a sort. Many of us learn to play when a friend or a cousin or uncle puts a Fender bass in our hands, shows you a 12-bar blues and suddenly you are off and running.

You Got A Blues Shuffle, Right?

The purpose of the lesson today is to provide an example of a classic blues shuffle, to show effective ways to interpret this noble bass groove, and to also give some smart, helpful advice on how to supercharge your shuffle finger-style with massive amounts of bass expression.
