    She waits for the tune to start so calmly and then just rips into the tune. Made me smile. Go bassgirl!

    Great job on a song with lots of tricky timing. Cute smile, too. Nice job, kiddo. We’ll be watching.

    That was wicked and totally cool….keep on keepin’ on….check out Mike Watt Bass lines when he was with The Minutemen and firehose…you might dig it

    Definitely looks like you’re having a fun time playing it. I’m working on this one myself to build up my nimbleness again after a long absence of playing. You’ve done a great job!!

    Bassgirl is not just a budding virtuoso on her instrument but a bopping eye-catching performer. I caught her live last night sitting in with four fifty-something pros and she DROVE the band. She even insisted on singing their songs. Imaging what she’ll do when she gets to high school!
