Down the bass rabbit hole with Ivan


Some samples from Ivan Sultanoff, regular jammer, occasional ski instructor. We have added some youtube url’s of each player – picked at random, but they are all addictive …

Just a few tips for bass players to look up, for instance for electric bass, look up on YouTube the following :

Scott’s bass lessons, deals with famous bass lines of various hotshot bass players, explains and shows bass lines in sections slow,up to speed , you can sign up.

John Patitucci- superb stuff on electric and upright bass, you can look up various clinics, I met John twice,had a good bass chat and was in one of his clinics in person and discovered he studied classical bass with my teacher I had at Guildhall School. …….
