"One of the most important things a bassist needs to learn is how to play in time. The audience will first react to the rhythm and groove of a song, and recognize melody second. Bass is all about groove. Groove is about feeling and time; truly playing with your drummer. That's where the most memorable bass lines come from. Any instructor out there can teach you how to play Red Barchetta. I'm more interested in teaching you how and why Red Barchetta works."
