Top 10: The Most Watched Bass Videos (September 2019)
September was another huge month for bass videos around here, and these top 10 reader favorites really hit some big numbers.
Here is your 10 top list for the month. Enjoy.
Rush’s 2007 album “Snakes & Arrows” included an awesome instrumental, entitled “The Main Monkey Business.” From the R40 tour, here’s a great clip of Geddy Lee and the band performing it.
Queen’s classical influence really shines on the intro to this song in a duet between Freddie Mercury and bassist John Deacon. Originally recorded for “A Day at the Races,” this clip of “The Millionaire Waltz” comes from a live performance at the Summit in Houston, Texas in 1977.
Weekends are great for sitting back and enjoying music. So we’re sharing a nearly two-hour video today from Marcus Miller’s performance at Jazz à la Villette this year. Enjoy!
On August 24th, Oteil & Friends took the stage at the LOCKN’ festival. The band, fronted by Oteil Burbridge, also included Duane Betts, Melvin Seals, Eric Krasno, Neal Casal, Jay Lane, Jen Hartswick, Nat Cressman, Alfreda Gerald, and Lamar Williams Jr.
Leonid & Friends, the band formed by bassist Leonid Vorobyev, is back with another fantastic Chicago cover. “Call On Me” originally appeared on the 1974 album, “Chicago VII.” As always, the band nails it.
In October 2018, Lari Basilio hit the studio with Siedah Garrett, Greg Phillinganes, Vinnie Colaiuta, and Nathan East and recorded this excellent cover of the Michael Jackson hit, “Man in the Mirror.” Nathan’s fills are so tasty!
Last year, we featured an incredible video featuring Abraham Laboriel and Pee Wee Hill, entitled “The Bass Walk.” Now they’re back with the follow-up.
WATCH: Scott Devine of Scott’s Bass Lessons shared a video that serves not only as a great trip down memory lane but also an incredibly rich history of bass from the 1980s.
Metallica teamed up with the San Francisco Symphony recently to tackle the metal juggernaut’s hits. One of the most jaw-dropping performances included symphony bassist Scott Pingel on an EUB, with an open improv that turned into “Anesthesia (Pulling Teeth).”
I’ve been spinning YYNOT’s new album, “Resonance,” a lot lately. So it was cool to see another video released by the band this morning. Take a listen to Tim Starace’s massive tone on “Wildest Dreams.”
