Steve Mackey is the kind of rock solid, soulful bass player that many of us professional bass colleagues wish we could play like. His funky-yet-subdued feel is highly in demand. In this episode Steve talks about moving to Nashville in the 80's, being in the studio with Garth Brooks & Dolly Parton and about his admiration for Willie Weeks, Duck Dunn and Randy Jackson among other topics. Steve also talks in depth about how he approaches a recording session, step-by-step, invaluable information for anyone looking to be proficient studio bass player. Steve can currently be seen on tour holding down the bottom end for The Wallflowers. In this episode both the guest and the host get riled up a few times about bass talk so nerdy, it can only be found on The Lowdown Society Podcast. Professor Mackey is in the house, let the lesson commence.
