Marcos Machado: Contrabass Conversations

March 3, 2017

Jason Heath interviews Marcos Machado.


"Marcos Machado is in the middle of launching his excellent and fascinating series Tao of Bass.  I saw this book pop up in my Facebook feed in the fall, and I got in touch with Marcos to do an interview about this project.

We dig into topics like:
  • how 20 years of scratching his head about bass technique led to this series

  • why he settled on Tao of Bass for a title

  • the wild mix of pedagogical styles that Marcos draws from

  • how important supple technique is for sound

  • how the 3rd finger is a secret weapon

  • taking a non-dogmatic approach to bass technique

…and much more!"
