I’m a bassist. It seems I’m drawn to the bass clef. I play Acoustic aka “stand-up” aka Double Bass (one last time; “it’s NOT a cello!”), and I play electric bass. I used to play Tuba. I sing bass / baritone. Still haven’t taken up bassoon, bass clarinet, or bari sax. But I love all instruments and even some difficult personalities if they play instruments well.
So Basso Bloggo is a place to talk about the bass. I’ve been doing it for a while. I may not be the best bassist in the world, but I’m not too bad even when I don’t practice (look out when I do…), and I know a lot about it and would love to share tips, new musical discoveries, and techie info with you. So jump on in and leave me a comment or two. Tell me about the bassists you love, performances that inspired you, great recordings, and other sites worth visiting.
Bottoms up…. to eleven.

Hi, was thinking about playing again. Have not touched the instrument in years. I have wasted alot of time.(I play strictly electric) Have had some trouble finding a serious bass teacher. Only came across Ron Smith out of Stonybrook. What do you know about him if anything. Thanks! VINNY
Trying to see if Faesal Contessa is still with us. Send me an email. I play bass too.: )
