About the author
Bass guitar is my life. I have been playing since I was fifteen and have been in a countless number of bands throughout the years. I’ve probably played hundreds (if not thousands!) of concerts. I began my career in the Czech Republic playing with many top acts. In 2011 I relocated to London to pursue new avenues and am now performing and writing and teaching. Check out my prog punk band Derek Trotson. I am a proud endorsee of Yamaha Basses, Mesa / Boogie Amps and D'Addario Strings and Jim Dunlop Effects.
