Intermediate Bass
Expand your bass know-how while learning cool and sometimes-challenging songs in a variety of styles, including blues, bluegrass, bossa nova, country, folk, pop, and swing. Every song will also offer opportunities to improve your left- and right-hand techniques, expand your understanding of theory, and visualize patterns to help you “see” the bass fretboard more clearly. An ability to read bass clef is not required, but you’ll start picking up that skill if you’re not already a reader. This class is open to upright, guitar-style, and ukulele-style bassists.
