John Ferrara Bass Clinic

John’s style blends deep grooves, contrapuntal tapping, dense chords and classical Indian percussion, with shades of avant guard experimentation. He has earned a reputation as a renaissance bassist, pulling from many different techniques from slapping, to tapping to finger style. He utilizes looping and custom midi foot pedals to play bass lines, freeing up his hands to treat his instrument like a piano, guitar, percussion instrument or vocalist. Combining all these together makes for a massive sound.

Ferrara’s compositions range from chill, ambient classical and minimalist inspired pieces to full on mathy-prog epics and tons in between. They incorporate a wide range of sounds, grooves, dynamics and emotions crossing in and out of many different genres.

John is also a founding member of “Consider the Source”.
