Full video available to Academy members »

About This Episode

In today’s podcast Steve Jenkins tells us all about his new course for the SBL Academy and the secrets behind his killer tone.

As many of you will already know, earlier in the year the SBL team descended on New York’s coolest borough to rub shoulders with some of the most exciting bass players on the planet. We captured some fantastic behind-the-scenes footage and we’ve been bringing you exclusive monthly courses ever since. Our most recent course features the amazing Steve Jenkins who walks you through a mix of modern groove concepts with drummer Kenny Grohowski. Steve’s best known for his stints with Vernon Reid (Living Colour) and Dave Fiuczynski in Screaming Headless Torsos, but he’s not lacked ambition in his solo career, with Steve Jenkins and the Coaxial Flutter his second album and most focused to date.

In this episode you're going to learn:

  • How Steve’s finding life since moving to California.
  • What he remembers about filming his academy course with Scott.
  • Why he found it so easy to play with drummer Kenny Grohowski.
  • How he’s fine-tuned his killer slap technique.
  • Plus much, much more…
