In Conversation with Rich Brown – Mastering The Modes

Full video available to Academy members »

About This Episode

In today’s podcast we talk modes with 6-string bass pioneer Rich Brown.

Having recently released a brand-new course into the SBL course library, this week’s podcast sees Rich Brown take centre stage. Rich is one of those players who regularly pushes the instrument to its limits, and sometimes beyond. He has performed and recorded with some of the finest musicians on the planet including Dapp Theory, Steve Coleman & 5 Elements, Vernon Reid, Bruce Cockburn and David Clayton Thomas (of Blood, Sweat, & Tears). Rich is also on the verge of stepping out with his own duo project featuring Snarky Puppy drummer, Larnell Lewis.

In this episode you're going to learn:

  • Why Rich plays a 6-string bass.
  • All about his approach to the modes.
  • What he remembers about the recording of his latest course for SBL.
  • About his new duo project with Larnell Lewis of Snarky Puppy.
  • And much, much more…
