THE LOWDOWN
Every month we tell you the bass-line we can't stop listening to.
THIS MONTH:
Eloise (Hang On In There)
Bassist:
Duck Dunn
Album:
The Soul Of A Bell
by William Bell
Has any bass player ever come
up with
better one- and two-bar grooves than
Duck Dunn? This classic Stax tune,
with its root-fifth verse riff and the
bouncing chorus groove, which leaves
space for Steve Cropper's guitar stabs, is proof positive that the best
bass-lines are always the simplest.
UPWARDS GROOVE
One of our favourite
online bass clips this
month comes from
the London Centre of
Contemporary Music,
where LCCM bass tutors
Geoff Gascoyne, Ernie
McKone, Silas Maitland
and John McKenzie give their take on a successful music career and
life at the low end. There's info on their favourite gigs and equipment,
as well as advice on generating income streams such as production,
arranging and teaching.
