Additional Information About Ernesto

My training as a bass teacher has been varied but very extensive. I started taking lessons with a teacher who was a guitarist and he destroyed me, because he taught me wrong the basic technique of the bass and years later I had to rectify it, it cost me a lot, but I overcame it.

Maybe that's why I put so much emphasis on technique for beginners, if you've seen my YouTube videos, you'll notice that I explain technique in the most detailed way possible. It is important to start from scratch right.

It was a second teacher I had, Alex Garcia, who was a double bass player and bassist, who made me see the deficiencies I had in technique. I spent two years taking lessons with him and then I continued my training on my own, in terms of technique.

At the same time, I was playing in different bands of different styles, I started with rock and punk and then I got into funk bands, reggae, Latin music, blues, rumbas and flamenco.



With all this, I was enriching myself playing the different styles and genres, I learned the Slap technique by buying methods and watching videos of Funky bass players.
I learned to read with the bass, rhythm and notes, and then I started with harmony...but I was lost...I didn't understand it.

I joined a dance orchestra and worked a lot playing in different towns in Spain, nowadays regetón is popular but at that time we played a lot of rock and everything live.

Then, I met what I consider my first teacher, Felix Santos, a Jazz Guitarist who was trained at Berklee College of Music. From him I learned the harmony of Berklee and also things from his own school, Ateneo Jazz Madrid, since he has been a teacher of teachers.

After that, harmony made me fly and I started with music composition, apart from the bass, I also wanted to play other instruments and experiment with music production.

I set up my own musical project, Flores en el Ártico, where I produced and composed all the songs of our first CD and the successive ones.
