This week, Josh speaks with Fernando Rosa. Hailing from São Paulo, Fernando’s deep appreciation and comprehension of the soul groove has developed and matured ever since he first learned to play bass as a child. Many sessions and tours later, he is truly a master of his craft. In recent years, he’s gained an online following through simple-yet-creative videos showing just Fernando and his bass as he explores his favorite musical realms. Here, he goes deep with host Josh Paul on a number of topics, from getting his start to how he approaches playing and his love of all things bass.
