Singing and Playing Bass at the Same Time

This is the first lesson from our new jazz bass tutor, Katie Thiroux. Based in L.A, Katie continues the hard-swinging bass tradition of bassists such as Ray Brown or John Clayton. She is also a superb singer, so the perfect person to teach a lesson on playing the double bass and singing at the same time.

The video opens with Katie's performance of 'If I Were a Bell' where she plays some tasteful walking lines with hip triplet fills. The transcription for this is available below.

At the end of the lesson Katie refer’s to her upcoming course “From Beginner to Bandstand” which comprises 25 lessons, play-along tracks and detailed transcriptions.
