Mina Burnside: 14 Year Old Bassist Tackle’s Jaco Pastorius’ “Portrait of Tracy”

Mina Burnside is a 14 year old bassist from Nashville who began playing three and a half years ago. In this clip, she takes on a monster of a bass tune: Jaco Pastorius’ “Portrait of Tracy”.

We love seeing (and sharing!) the many young players who demonstrate their dedication and willingness to tackle some tough tunes and show the world. Watch out bassists! A whole new generation of great bassists are on their way. Thanks to Jody Michael of Ansir Music for sending us this video.
