It is often said that for a band to be successful it is imperative that your bass player and drummer form an almost symbiotic relationship. It’s this relationship that provides the backbone for other musicians to shine. And while that relationship is imperative, it is also essential that the bass player and guitarist learn to understand each other.
During this FREE Guitar Frenzy workshop Henry Steel & Schalk Van Der Merwe will share their insights into the character and relationship between the two instruments.
While this workshop is primarily aimed at guitarists and bass players, all musicians can gain some value from attending. Afterall, a deeper understanding of how instruments interact will improve your ability to compose music.
