Bass

The bass is incredibly important for worship music. Bass should be big, simple, foundational with tasteful occasional movement and rhythmic patterns to support the emotion of the moment of the song, or the melody of the vocal. Please watch the video below to learn what we’re looking for in a good worship bass player. 


Put on some headphones and follow these two courses “Jamie Lewis – The Bassist, Playing Bass on a Worship Team 8 part series” and “Tips and Techniques for Your Worship Bass Players by Worship Ministry Training” after your done, take some time and listen with purpose to some modern worship music, specifically listen to what the bass player is doing and why, write down the song name, artist, and album and make note of everything the bassist is doing, when you are done email those notes to Austin@missionchurchvb.com.
