Chris Chaney's devotion to the bass began early. Hard work and dedication to his craft brought him to the classrooms of Berklee College as well as the beer-soaked floors of Los Angeles clubs. Hundreds of shows and recordings later—including work with Alanis Morrisette, Jane's Addiction, Taylor Hawkins, and numerous film scores—Chris is first-call for laying down just the right groove and putting the notes right where they need to be. On this episode, Josh Paul talks to Chris about his musical journey, insights on playing and getting gigs, as well as the fun world of gear.
