I've read and heard that the real way to get playing on your bass is to just turn on the radio and play what you hear. Trouble is, I hear vocals, I hear guitars, I hear drums, maybe some keyboard... but I don't hear bass. Honestly, whenever I watch a video of a performance, I see some guy rocking out on his bass and I chuckle, 'cause he doesn't seem to be making any noise for all his effort. On the radio, in the car, anywhere I listen to music, I don't hear the bass guitar. I'd never given it much thought, but now that I'm trying to learn, I listen for it and still hardly hear anything. I've got some headphones that are overly bass-heavy, they help, but still, it's not as clear as what it seems other people are hearing. I would think it was a low frequency hearing loss issue, but I've been singing a low, low bass since high school, I listen to uber-low bass singers (bass guitar low) all the time. I played trombone as a teenager, and always wanted to go lower. The bass range is my home. A tenor in my old barbershop quartet once asked if he was too loud on a recording; I laughed and said I couldn't even hear him, all I could hear was my way-too-loud bass line (to which he responded with surprise, as he couldn't hardly hear me at all.) I'm the only person I know who could hear a low G and know Thurl Ravenscroft from Vladimir Miller from Barry Carl from JD Sumner from Delos Jewkes. So before I would have said I had an excellent ear for low frequencies... except now I discover I can't hardly pick out bass guitar from the mix. "Another One Bites the Dust" is easy enough, but songs with more going on just lose me. How can I learn to hear bass in the mix better?
