At this point, it’s basically indisputable that instrumental prog outfit Scale the Summit are on the cutting edge of the bands that are getting in on the musicianship industry, this interesting, exciting, and weird new complex in which lessons, theory, and musical ideologies are being flung as products.
So I was excited to see that bassist Mark Michell is making things a bit more official by launching Low End University, a website dedicated to teaching bass. Mark’s site has already got several hours of video content, and will provide insight via theoretical lessons, song playthroughs, transcriptions, technique, and more. Check out a video intro below, and start studying up!
In case you forgot that Michell is a killer player, check out his playthrough of “Atlas Novus” off Scale the Summit’s last album The Migration, courtesy EMGtv:
