Good Bass mags

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by RomperStomper, Sep 25, 2001.


  1. Any recommendations for a good Bass mag? Something with more than just gear reviews and stuff? I'm a beginner (just started last week) and I'm looking for tips and a little instruction not to mention talk about inspiration, etc. I like Bass Player but I would think there are other bass mags out there.

    Guess what, I don't find a lot of difference between Bass Player and these other than Bass Player as top dog has a bigger budget. The editorial content is amazingly similar.

    Bass Frontiers

    Bassics

    For instruction and inspiration, if you're at all interested in jazz, try this even though it's not bass-centric:

    Jazz Improv
    http://www.jazzimprov.com

    This last one is 100% focused on string bass, mostly classical but some jazz. No bass guitar content whatsoever! Includes a complete score in every issue!

  3. Thanks Brian for the suggestions!
