This week I’m sitting down to talk bass education with the one and only Jeff Berlin
Bass Guitar Legend – Jeff Berlin
Jeff is one of the most revered bass players of all time. His reputation crosses all styles and he is one of the great innovators of the instrument having played as a ‘super sideman’ for legends such as Bill Bruford, Allan Holdsworth and as a solo artist.
He is also one of the leading voices in bass education. His no-nonsense approach to ‘academic’ teaching has led to his somewhat controversial and iconoclastic reputation.
In this interview we delve deep into Jeff’s views on all things bass education and I take on the role of devil’s advocate in providing a counter argument to some of his most popular beliefs.
