Tips and Techniques for Worship Bass Players

The bass guitar is such an incredibly important instrument in a worship band context. Bass carries all the energy, and when played properly can really help your church enter in and engage during musical worship. Yet many bass players take the wrong approach to their playing in a worship setting. Worship calls for a specific style of playing. In this episode I share four key concepts to keep in mind when playing bass in a worship band context, and then demonstrate a whole host of techniques that your bassists can begin applying this upcoming Sunday. Consider this a crash course tutorial for your worship bass players. Be sure to send this episode to them, or even better, send them the video version of the episode so they can watch me demonstrate the principles and techniques in action: Worship Bass Tutorial Video
