Issue Cover

Bass Guitar  |  90 April 2013  


We were racking our brains at the BGM command bunker the other day over the immortal question “Which British bass player appears on TV most often?”, and after hours of debate we couldn’t come up with a better candidate than the great Dave Swift, he of Jools Holland fame. Our in-depth – and revealing – interview with Mr. Swift takes full advantage of the fact that when it comes to session bass playing at the highest level, Dave’s experience is unparalleled. Read and learn, all you aspiring pro bassists.
Elsewhere in this issue we meet bassists from both ends of the spectrum of rock, the Levellers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Halestorm and Soilwork. All of bass life is here, and that’s before we even get close to the reviews and tuition sections, designed as always to bring you the widest possible range of bass info, from the expensive, advanced gear and tips to budget, beginner’s materials. Our aim is to make you a better, more informed bass player: don’t forget to check out Jeff Berlin’s column for advice about how to get there, and see the Front Line section for tips on how to survive the rough old world of pro bass playing once you’ve arrived. Never fear: BGM will be with you all the way!

   Always a good read Reviewed Thursday, July 11, 2019
Really entertaining view of guitar
   Preferred the old reader Reviewed Saturday, November 24, 2012
Although the new version has a few extra goodies like a side menu with all articles and a nicer layout, the zoom isn't as good as the old reader. With my phone horizontal the maximum zoom still has tiny lettering. It would be no good to someone who is short sighted.
