Stuart Clayton: The Simpsons Theme, Bass Style

Okay, we’re now huge fans of bassist Stuart Clayton, after watching exactly one video.

It didn’t hurt that he’s playing the theme from The Simpsons. Or that he nailed it.

    Stuart taught me Bass (sadly I'm not quite that good ), you guys need to check some of the other stuff he's done, a ridiculous amount of skill he has

  6. Johnny

    This is an awesome display of musicianship. Back into the practice lab I go!!!

    Why? Great skill. Useless though. Nice hobby. Better than watching TV. I see skill. I don’t see musicianship per se. Not the same thing. Fast typing isn’t poetry.

    • Dude, put down the haterade and give it up for the guy. He published a whole book of these solo arrangements, could someone without any musicianship arrange 12 solo bass songs? Maybe it’s a little wanky but who cares, the guy kills it.

      Could you do that? Do you think that may influence your opinion at all?

    • Don’t see musicianship? What does that even mean per se? He plays two separate parts at the same time much like you would on a piano and he does it well, how is that not showing musicianship? No it’s not practical, or will it be used often but it is something usable. Fast typing isn’t poetry, unless your typing….poetry

  12. Very cool….enjoyed it!

  13. Nice Job! OK…I will stop complaining about having to memorize complete Charlie Parker transcriptions for Improv Class at North Texas this semester!

  14. TOO AWESOME. damn hardcore finger tapping.

  15. […] Which reminds us of another great theme song for bass: Stuart Clayton’s take on “The Simpsons” theme. […]
