ur mission at
Bass Guitar
Magazine
is the same
today as it has been since
we assembled issue one
out of sticky-backed
plastic and cardboard
back at the dawn of time (2002).
We want to bring you the
glorious world of bass in all its
multifaceted glory, from the
stages, studios, stadiums and
sessions via gear manufacturers
and dealers to the players
themselves, and to that end,
we think we've excelled ourselves in the issue you're holding. First
up is the legendary Stuart Hamm, a man for whom adjectives 'fast-
fingered, 'imaginative' and 'talented' simply do not suffice. Anyone who
witnessed Stu's set at the recent London Bass Guitar Show will know
what we're talking about: dive into his interview without delay. After
all, anyone with a tattoo that reads 'No Regerts' (sic) is our kind of guy.
Then we bring you interviews with a stellar range of bassists.
Sometime Rolling Stone Bill Wyman and Blondie bassist Nigel
Harrison need little introduction, while Wolfgang Van Halen and
Grog Rox bring the rock like few others. Then we've got headbanging
aplenty from the Helloween and Cradle Of Filth bassists, and insane
levels of funk from pick-wielder Cody Wright.
How could it get any better? Only with the addition of our renowned
gear reviews and tuition sections, in which ace gear from the likes of
Bass Centre, Carvin and Ashdown rub shoulders with world-class
educators from every field of music. Finally, we've thrown in a lesson
of Stu Hamm exercises to keep you busy until July. The objective stays
true after all these years: stick with us, and we'll make you a better bass
player. Enjoy!
