Hey Folks, one of our bass brethren is in dire need of our help. My friend, blues bassist extraordinaire, Lane Baldwin has been having some serious medical issues the past several months and is in need of financial support. He is currently unable to play out which means no income is coming in and his living expenses and medical bills are really starting to add up. Lane is a great guy who really needs our help right now. Anything you can do would surely be appreciated.
September 9, 2013 – Los Angeles, CA – Media Entertainment Management Group (MEMG) announced that their premier artist Lane Baldwin won the Sacramento, CA, International Blues Challenge regional solo/duo competition yesterday, performing on bass guitar and vocals. This is the first time a solo bassist has represented the city in the IBC competitions. It may also be the first time a solo bassist has competed in the final rounds of the IBC.
While I am committed to completing Roy Vogt’s Teach Me Bass Guitar course, I can’t help but notice that a number of stellar bass lesson websites have popped up over the last couple of years. Some of these offer free tips, tricks and lessons, some are pay sites and many are a combination of the two. In an effort to expand my horizons as a bass player I often browse many of these sites for insight, inspiration and even just a different perspective. Now is definitely a great time to be a bassist as more and more of these sites, as well as miscellaneous videos seem to be popping up daily.
