2017 Reader Favorites – #9: Tim Starace

Editor’s Note: At the end of each year, we tally up all the article and video views on No Treble to come up with a list of the top 10 most popular bassists. This is entirely based on readership, not on opinions, polls, or anything else. Just having some fun.

Check out the videos that landed Tim at the #9 slot on this year’s reader favorites list:
