Welcome to larslehmann.com
homepage of the German freelance bass player Lars Lehmann!
After more than 25 years in the business Lars Lehmann has become an integral part of the bass world. Ever since the mid-1990’s countless tours have led the highly versatile electric bass and double bass player around the globe multiple times. At the same time his distinctive playing style has become the important groove backbone of numerous recordings.
Nowadays you will find Lars either gigging at international rock, pop, funk & soul venues or jazz festivals. Then again you will spot him playing the double bass in the orchestra pit for various musical shows.
Lars has also gained an excellent reputation as a bass educator, e.g. at the “Popakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg”, Mannheim, Germany, the “Hochschule fuer Musik, Theater und Medien” in Hannover, Germany, the “Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM)” in London, England, as well as the “Warwick Bass Camp”, a highly esteemed international bass workshop, where he has taught classes alongside bass legends such as Victor Wooten, Steve Bailey, Alphonso Johnson, Bobby Vega, Stu Hamm, Adam Nitti and Gary Willis. Last but not least Lars has written one of the best teaching method books on slapping bass: “Slap-Attack”.
In addition to his work as a musician Lars was the editor in chief of the German bass magazine “Bass Professor from 1996 to 2015. He has also been the head of bass editorial office of www.bonedo.de, the biggest German online magazine, since 2015.
