    Stuart Clayton: Giants of Bass – Flea

    Stuart Clayton just added a new video showcasing his work in progress on the new edition of Giants of Bass. In this video, he tackles the style of Flea – particularly the style of the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Blood Sugar Sex Magik era. Dig the tone on that 1976 Music Man StingRay! »

  • Alex Spradling and Marco Panascia: I Mean You

    Alex Spradling and Marco Panascia: I Mean You

    I love it when bass players get together to jam, especially when they’re on such a high level of musicianship like Alex Spradling and Marco Panascia. In this clip, the double bass duo have a blast while tearing through the classic Thelonious Monk standard “I Mean You”, and their joy is infectious. Each bassist lays... »

  • Liben Tom & Jason Kishander: iPhone, Bass & Drums Jam

    Liben Tom & Jason Kishander: iPhone, Bass & Drums Jam

    Bassist Jason Kishander sent me this video, and it is quite clever. They took one of the most recognizable ring tones (“Opening” on iPhone), and turned it into this bass and drums jam. It took me a minute to focus on the video and not pick up my phone. Then things got really interesting. »

    No Treble reader Zac Sebo sent us this video saying “I found this hilarious guy covering Vulfpeck and thought you’d like it. I bet it would go over well with all your fans.” We have no idea who That Funky Old Guy is (though we’re pretty sure he’s much younger than advertised). Still, this is... »

    Circus VIII: All Of Jason’s Beans

    Jason Tebble sent us this video of his band Circus VIII’s first single, which he said “is full of funk bad ass bass beans!” We watched it, and we have to agree 100%. We can’t wait to hear more from this band. Dig it. »
