A BASSIST'S STORY

 

 

Lee Feltham

 

 

Alexander Technique is now the starting point for me in my music and everyday activities! Regular sessions have helped me overcome simple problems like tense knees while playing (causing me to suffer lower back pains) and since helped me to address and solve more complex issues such as freedom to move comfortably on stage and play more intricate bass lines.

 

As well as finding many discrepancies in my playing, I also found many strengths that I was neglecting to use fully. Other bass players often say to me that they worry Alexander Technique will prohibit them from certain playing methods. For me it did the opposite! I was able to grasp modern, ‘light touch’ techniques utilized by such players as Victor Wooten, Gary Willis and Janek Gwizdala as well being able to play comfortably with a more aggressive approach like Flea and Francis ‘Rocco’ Prestia.

 

All in all, I cannot imagine how I could have moved forward without such an aid as Alexander Technique. As part of being a touring musician, I am now required to sing on nearly all my gigs and what I have learnt through Alexander Technique is helping me with that too!”
