The role of the bassist is to transform the pure rhythm of the drums into a rhythmic melody that the other musicians can develop a tune around. This means the bassist is in charge of the link between harmony and groove and that’s no small feat; his mission is crucial. And yes, playing the bass is cool! Here is our selection of present ideas for beginner or experienced bassists.
