It's true: one of modern bass's most original, groundbreaking, influential artists is coming to Elderly Instruments, and we're offering an opportunity to study with him live and in person (not to mention hear him tell stories)!
Through his innovative work as a solo artist and contributions as a sideman to Joe Satriani and Steve Vai, Stuart Hamm has firmly established himself as one of the most influential electric bassists of the past half-century. Extending the non-traditional function of the electric bass previously revolutionized by Jaco Pastorius and Stanley Clarke in the 1970s, Hamm has helped to reshape the contemporary concept of bass guitar as an unaccompanied instrument.
In this 90-minute clinic, Hamm talks about his storied career, and plays selections from his solo catalog as well as with the people he's played with.
PLUS: Stu Hamm will be available for private lessons! on that same day, from noon to 5 - $60 for a half hour or $100 for an hour. Call us at 517-372-7880 (or 888-473-5810 toll-free) during store hours to book a slot (and do it soon - this is a rare opportunity!)
