On 15th March our bass students were treated to an exclusive masterclass from bassist and effects specialist Christopher Hargreaves!

Throughout his career, Chris has toured all over the world with his own band Submotion Orchestra, pop artist Alex Clare, grime legends Newham Generals and P-Money, as well as Andreya Triana, Mark Stewart, Adrian Sherwood, Alex Hepburn and many more.

In this interactive masterclass, Chris discussed using effects creatively to enhance bass playing and the importance of understanding different sounds and frequencies as a bass player.

You can catch Chris live with Submotion Orchestra on tour across the UK and Europe right now.
