Ask Zac Episode 13 - Tips & Tricks for the Fender & Squier Bass VI

April 17, 2020

A good friend of mine gifted me a Squier Bass VI, and I have had so much fun learning about the instrument, and how to use it in both performance and recording environments. In this episode, I share both the Danelectro 6 string bass and the Fender Bass VI's history, and the players that put them both on the map. I also give some EQ, effect, and playing tricks for 6-string bass guitars.
