"Back to Bassists: How I Got into Bass Guitar"

Accidental Obsession
Diego Morrison is the bass player in the Mexican rock/pop band Dharma that recently released their first album, “Escaparate 2.0.” The band aims to spread positive energy through music to anyone who is willing to undergo a revolution of love. You can follow the band through their official website and social media.

Diego started playing bass after a blue bass in a department store caught his eye.

What road led you to playing bass?
It kind of happened by accident. I played guitar, and one day, I saw a blue bass in a department store. I think the color caught my eye. I remember thinking that playing bass had to be like playing guitar, so I bought it. As I learned to play it, I realized that it is very different. However, there is something about a bass guitar that really makes me feel complete. I've been playing bass ever since.

What is your favorite bass guitar?
I'm in love with all Fender basses, but my favorite one has to be a Jazz Bass. Of all of my basses, my favorite one is Fender Jazz Bass. It has 3-Color Sunburst, black pickguard with Vintage Noiseless Pickups, and both Vintage-Style pickup covers.

Who inspired you?
My biggest inspirations are Chris Wolstenholme from Muse and Guy Berryman from Coldplay. The first song I ever played on a bass guitar was Hysteria by Muse. - Musician's Friend

""Dharma en Circulart2011""

Pues llegaron de México a circulart2011 sin inscripción, showcase o como parte oficial del evento, se enteraron muy tarde de la convocatoria y se pasaron las fechas, sin importar eso, aterrizaron en Medallo para presentarse y darse a conocer, son Dharma "una mezcla de rock clásico y pop maduro, que busca bañar de groove, diversión y buena vibra a toda la gente que esté dispuesta a salpicarlo a todos a su alrededor, para experimentar lo que sería un mundo ideal, lleno de buen karma"

Dharma se encuentra grabando su primera producción discográfica y se preparan para una gira por la República Mexicana y Colombia a finales del 2011. - Me tiembla la mano - Medellín, Colombia


""Estos cuatro amigos, quienes se conocieron hace cuatro meses, tienen el propósito de ser la mejor banda de México.""

Cuatro personalidades, cuatro talentos innatos enfundados en un solo propósito, ser la mejor banda de México y cosechar en su público el bien a través de Dharma, quien celebrará su lanzamiento como proyecto el próximo primero de octubre.

Hace cuatro meses, Arturo Huitron, Dan Kohteramo, Diego García y Leo Hudson, formaron esta familia, después de que cada uno ya había probado suerte con otros grupos.

Los ensayos y las composiciones empezaron a ser más que una necesidad para los integrantes, quienes desde un inicio buscaron hacer de Dharma “una mentalidad, una forma de vida, un medio para transmitir buena vibra para recibir el bien”.

El sonido del grupo es un rock con tintes de funk y pop, con temas en sus letras de amor y desamor, parte de sus vivencias y esencia, influenciados por Guns N’ Roses, Led Zepelin, Maroon 5 y pinceladas de blues al estilo John Mayer; y coronado con una voz que recuerda a grandes como Bon Jovi y U2.

“Es veneno” es el primer sencillo de su disco homónimo en formato ep, que será lanzado de manera independiente el próximo mes de noviembre, de la mano de Mike Sierra, productor de la banda.

En entrevista a BARRIO, Dharma puso en claro su pasión por la música, en la que cada uno a encontrado sensaciones únicas, como Dan, que considera su “voz como una parte de su cuerpo, con la que siempre soy yo”; la bateria de Arturo suena a un chico extrovertido, con la que “puedo expresarme, no me clavo en los golpes sino en el sonido definido”.

Diego olvida “ sus problemas, dejo que el bajo hable por mí” y Leo, que pone el toque de la experiencia y el estilo Slash en los riffs de su guitarra. - Nuria Rosales / BARRIO
