Every bass player has their heroes, and session superstars like Pino Palladino and Nathan East will no doubt feature somewhere on your list. But if your sights are set on the studio world, having talent is only half the battle.
In today’s video I want to share an exclusive performance featuring bassist Sean Hurley in session with singer-songwriter David Ryan Harris.
Sean is the kind of bassist that makes everything look effortless, but as a studio musician it can be all too easy to play the wrong thing if you’re not really listening to the song.
The good news (yes, there’s good news) is that we’ve an in-depth course in the SBL course library, in which Sean shares his most guarded studio secrets. So if you want to become a regular session player, but you don’t know where to start, grab yourself a free trial and head straight to Sean’s course!
As always, see you in the shed…
PS. If you're an academy member you've got access to the full course that this performance was taken from... seriously, if you've not checked out the full course yet, put it on your "to-do" list TODAY! It's that good.
PPS: And there’s even more! We’ve just released another new course that’s designed to land you even more gigs as a studio musician! Check it out here; How To Get Hired | A Creative Approach to Session Bass Playing with Ian Allison.
