Daniel Rey: Palenque

Facebook friend César Romo Castro sent us this video of bassist Daniel Rey performing his original composition, “Palenque”.

Daniel’s technique is truly remarkable – especially his right hand, which doesn’t look quite human.

    AMAZING!!!! How do you get the bass to play so easily that way? Intonation/ strings? Any other tricks?

    • Charles

      There are no tricks, my friend – there is a lot of dedication, perseverance, musical knowledge, power of invention and creativity..and practice, practice, practice…and of course it is a prerequisite to have a good instrument. Kind regards.

  9. STANLEY JORDON…….Very amazing on bass!

  10. Incredible…from out of this world!

  11. Wow! Some amazing right hand work! At times, it almost looks like some kind of crustacean crawling across the fretboard.

  12. This is FANTASTIC. I sometimes got the impression this was inspired by the composition “Classical Gas” by Mason Williams, but improved upon for bass. Daniel has phenomenal technique and timing. I’m not sure how old Daniel is but he has a BRILLIANT career ahead of him if he continues to pursue music, which I pray he does and truly look forward to hearing more from him in the future..

  13. Puro Jazz xD saludos men
