MC music workshops at Tall City Blues Fest

Record & Go: Blues Bass Approaches & Styles with Rob Thaxton

Tall City Blues Fest is the signature summer event in downtown Midland and the best blues fest in Texas. Tall City Blues Fest 2017, presented by Downtown Midland Management District, will be held in downtown Midland July 14-16.

We are partnering with Tall City Blues Fest this year to offer music workshops in conjunction with the festival. All of the workshops will be held on Saturday, July 15, at the Doubletree Hotel, next to the festival grounds. Proceeds from the workshop registration fees will go to fund 2018 Kids’ College scholarships.



Record & Go: Blues Bass Approaches & Styles

Workshop Leader: Rob Thaxton (Bassist for Noah Wotherspoon)

This workshop will include an overview of the different bass guitar approaches to various styles and forms including shuffles, slow blues, rhumba and funk, plus a demonstration of “grooving” with the drummer for a tight rhythm section.

A discussion of scales, chords and common time signatures found in blues will also be included in this A-Z beginner to intermediate bass guitar workshop.

What to Bring: A small recording device, such as an iPhone or iPad to record for later review.
