Top 10: The Most Watched Bass Videos (May 2019)
May was a huge month for bass videos on No Treble. And here are the top 10 favorites we shared.
Thanks for watching, commenting and sharing.
Les Claypool and Sean Lennon kicked off their latest tour with a special treat for fans – and for Claypool. Geddy Lee joined The Delirium onstage in Toronto for their rendition of Sean Lennon’s dad’s, “Tomorrow Never Knows.”
It has been quite a while since we’ve been able to feature a new video by Dirty Loops. That changes today with the return of the band and a new video they just shared.
Last year, Theo Katzman and his band took the stage at BIRD Rotterdam. The always popular Joe Dart was part of the group, and after the crowd chanting his name, he went into one funky intro for the band’s take on The Eagles’ “One Of These Nights.”
MonoNeon shared this epic clip on Facebook, with a performance he did with drummer Larnell Lewis and Ghost-Note for Zildjian LIVE! “Change Your Mind” is a funky tune, and MonoNeon causes the sax player to have bass face in this one!
The Claypool Lennon Delirium recently visited The Current studio to perform music from their latest album, “South of Reality.” Here’s Les Claypool, Sean Lennon, and the band performing “Blood and Rockets.”
WATCH: Multi-instrumentalist Jacob Collier never ceases to amaze us. In this clip, he performs an arrangement of The Beatles’ “Here Comes the Sun” on too many instruments to count (including double and electric basses) and multiple vocal tracks.
Paul Gilbert’s “Behold Electric Guitar” was released earlier this month, and from what I’ve heard so far, it is fantastic – and pretty unexpected. Here’s the clip for the track “Blues For Rabbit,” with bassist Roland Guerin laying it down.
Sting is releasing “My Songs” later this month. The new album will include his biggest hits from his career, “each reshaped and reimagined for 2019.” To help kick things off, he and his band appeared on the Today Show to perform “Shape Of My Heart.”
Tedeschi Trucks Band made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week, and there’s a new bassist in the mix. In this clip, Brandon Boone lays down the low end, following Tim Lefebvre’s departure from the band.
Karl Clews sent me this very cool video of him performing Stanley Clarke’s “Lopsy Lu”, but with a twist. Karl switches between all four of the headless, carbon-fiber neck basses in his collection, to compare and contrast the tones of these instruments.
