I am a six-string electric bass player out of Toronto, Canada whose passion is to compose and arrange music for the solo electric bass. I believe that every instrument has the ability to sing and connect with an audience, not just a vocalist, but a tuba or a ukelele, and in my case the electric bass. In playing the essential elements of music; harmony, melody and rhythm/groove, all on the six-string electric bass, It becomes necessary to implement a wide range of extended techniques. These include two-hand tapping, slap bass, artificial and natural harmonics and other non-traditional methods of obtaining various sonorities and bipartite or tripartite contrapuntal composition. To see and hear just how I do this, please checkout my videos at youtube.com/user/themusicofjoshcohen!
