Morning everyone, how are you? Yesterday I had my first bass class, and it was great! Matter of fact, I'm still amazed; I knew it was an important intrument within a band but boy! I had no idea how crucial it was! Anyone watches football (soccer)? Well, IMO, the bass in a band is the central midfielder in a football field. The middleman, the intermediary between offense and defense; the one in charge of connecting both sections, hence allowing the game to flow. No matter what instrument you play you will always rely on the bass! And that's why it's such an underestimated instrument by many; I don't think people will be able to understand its importance, the fundamental role of bass until they try it themselves and learn what hides between those notes. Of course this is just my personal point of view!
