More about 'The Fender bass... it changed everything'

The bass guitar is sixty years old, and its development as an instrument since 1955 is a useful metaphor for change in many areas of music, education and technology.

Just how did we get from early rock ’n’ roll to bass guitar concertos; from plodding support act to technical and sonic mastery; and even band player to Professor of Bass Guitar?

Registration closes 11.30pm 13 September 2015.
