I don’t know how many people viewed the most watched bass videos last month on “No Treble” . But according to playability with bass the best is the lovely lady Ana Karina Sebastião with Lari Basilio on guitar.

Ana is amazing on bass from her smile to her little bass vibe she does while playing. I got to give it to her over Marcus and Sharay.

Ana’s got it going on , I do believe , O yes I do.
