Joanna Dudkowska: Bach Cello Suite No. 1, I. Prelude

1. Joanna Dudkowska: Bach Cello Suite No. 1, I. Prelude

We’ve seen plenty of bassists tackle Bach’s Prelude to the first Cello Suite, but never quite like this. Polish bassist Joanna Dudkowska produced this video performing the iconic piece in her many personas…

2. Greta Van Fleet: Highway Tune

I’ve seen this video being shared around Facebook lately. When I finally got the chance to watch it, I was completely knocked out. Greta Van Fleet did a session for 101WKQX in The Sound Lounge and performed “Highway Tune,” which is the first single from the band’s debut EP Black Smoke Rising

YouTube bassist Davie504 makes some incredible videos. No matter what or how well he plays, people comment with a challenge for his next video.

6. Elton John: Madman Across the Water (Live)

I spin Elton John’s 17-11-70 album regularly, mostly just to hear the remarkable bass lines of Dee Murray. It never gets old. There’s simply not enough footage of this incredible bassist (or Elton John’s trio) out there, but here’s a great clip of them performing the title track to Madman Across the Water, live…

Theo Katzman with Joe Dart: Crappy Love Song

7. Theo Katzman with Joe Dart: Crappy Love Song

A little over a year ago, I caught Theo Katzman’s concert at Jammin Java in Vienna, VA. What I didn’t know (until the band walked on stage), was that his Vulfpeck bandmate Joe Dart was joining him on the tour. Last month, the band recorded this concert for Audiotree Live in Chicago, IL…

Postmodern Jukebox: Nothing Else Matters

8. Postmodern Jukebox: Nothing Else Matters

Postmodern Jukebox shared this video with this note: “Here’s how Metallica would have sounded back in the 1960s – featuring amazing 15 year old soul vocalist Caroline Baran.” This is one incredible arrangement and performance, with Adam Kubota on bass…

He’s even made the transcriptions and backing tracks available…
