Missy Raines is interviewed by Jon Liebman in this new interview on For Bass Players Only. She talks about her early exposures to music and learning bass, her thoughts on other female bassists, teaching online bass lessonswith ArtistWorks, and much more.
“I didn’t teach myself, really. I learned from those around me. I learned by listening and I picked up as much as I could. I did not study formally, though; I just played. I was a teenager and I just played all the time. I played with records and I played with other people. I would go to bluegrass festivals and spend hours and hours jamming with other musicians, mostly people my own age, so it was just that.” – Missy Raines
