String Bass Basics

String Bass Basics

Learn how to play pizzicato technique for hours and days without blowing out your fingertips! We’ll also learn aspects of intonation and theory, including the modes of the diatonic scale, the “Nashville number system”, and common chord progressions: I IV V, ii V I, I vi IV V l.

We’ll then apply all this to some progressive styles, starting with country, then blues, and then jazz. If the mood strikes us, we will perform as the Orchestra of Low-End on the final Friday of camp!

Please bring a tuning device with you to the workshop.
