Free Guitar Frenzy Workshop: The Versatile Bassist

By PAUL BOTHNER MUSIC | November 10, 2017

All a bass player needs to do is play the root note. Right? While, technically, yes, that is right, it doesn’t exactly produce a Versatile Bassist. If you want to be a Versatile Bassist, come to the FREE workshop.

This workshop is being presented by Chadleigh Gowar, one of the most Versatile Bassists in South Africa. He will discuss everything you need to know to get your bass playing to the next level.

When: 18 November 2017
Where: Paul Bothner Music Somerset West
Shop 16, Checkers Centre
c/o Main & Gordons Street
Time: 11H00

Who Should Attend

Bass is more than just an accompanying instrument. It has a massive range of tones and stylistic variety that can really make your music “pop”. This workshop is for any bass player who wants to be more than just a root note player.

If you want to stand out in your duo or trio, or if you want to explore solo playing, then this is the workshop you’ve been waiting for.
