Bass Playing and Bass Gear Clinic with Jesse Dawson

This clinic will start by focusing on gear. This would include things such as the difference between tubes and solid state, and different uses for certain effect pedals. It will also cover the basses themselves, including pickup configuration, different string types, different woods, and tonal difference. The clinic will then focus on application of different styles of playing, constructing a bassline, different techniques, and a more in depth look into a couple of famous bass lines. There will also be a Q&A at the end!
