Bass Player - May 2015 - Tony Garnier
Bass Player’s May 2015 issue features Tony Garnier. With a long career supporting Bob Dylan and other top tunesmiths, Garnier can turn lyrics and meaning into beautiful sounds.
Next up are octavers, envelope filters, and fuzzes – they’re the top three categories of stompboxes for bassists. We explain how they work and take a selected look at what’s available.
Then, Tim Commerford rages with machines in this cutting-edge future classic “Mountain Lion” from his new band Future User.
Later, Bass Notes features Nick Forster on electric bass in bluegrass with Hot Rize, Bridget Kearney on driving the doghouse with Lake Street Dive, and Kaveh Rastegar talks about his green P-bass and playing with Sia, John Legend, Kneebody, and more.
Plus: New gear from Aguilar, Laney, Zon and more, Rick Turner Guitars’ Electroline bass is back in production, DR Strings Pure Blues Quantum-Nickel strings, Tonal Vision on being open to new sounds, and much more!
