The late Jack Bruce on Bach and the structure of bass lines

Mar 20, 2019

"When it comes to bass, what I play doesn’t have to be busy or fast, but  it has to be melodic. The earliest example of that is J.S. Bach. He  wrote fabulous bass parts which every bass player should study, because  they perfectly illustrate how to be functional and melodic at the same  time."

(Add Jack Casady and Phil Lesh to my pantheon of rock Bass players whose work teaches classical bass).
