Nov 28, 2016

In today’s podcast I sit down with Geoff to share my story.

My love affair with the bass started in the North West of England, where I got a job as an apprentice luthier at Overwater Basses. During the next few years, I landed a gig on a cruise ship where I learned the ropes, before setting up having been told that I wouldn’t be able to play bass again due to a neurological disorder. After discovering that silk gloves could help me regain control of my playing, I set about putting the finishing touches to SBL. Of course, it didn’t all happen overnight, and who better to delve a little deeper than our very own Geoff Chalmers.
