Top 10: The Most Watched Bass Videos (June 2020)
Time to celebrate some serious bass goodness, in the form of our monthly top 10 reader favorite video list.
Here are the 10 most-watched videos on No Treble for the month of June 2020.
Steely Dan’s “Peg” is one of my all-time favorite tunes, thanks to the incredible bass line by Chuck Rainey. Rebecca Johnson and her band performed the tune live back in January. As always, Rebecca knocks us out with both her playing and singing.
The Purdie Shuffle is one of the greatest drum grooves of all time, and Bernard Purdie is often spirited when he explains his pattern. Bassist Nick Schendzielos had some fun with one of Purdie’s videos to create an awesome and hilarious clip of his own.
Vulfpeck’s “Dean Town” has been covered by a ton of bassists, but I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a cover like this one. Thomas Allin took the tune and performed it on a double bass - with a bow.
Late last month, we shared the release of a new single by bassist Mai Leisz. Mai debuted the video for the track last night, and it is equally powerful in the music, the visuals, and the message. Check out “Ho'oponopono”
While I’ve been lately focused on his work with Ghost-Note, any time MonoNeon drops a new video, I’m watching. In this clip, he takes Madlib’s “Fallin” track and adds some seriously funky bass to it.
As we said a while back, it is so great to see Viaceslav Svedov back making videos. Here’s a new one by him, with a funky slap version of Metallica’s “Creeping Death”. Viaceslav calls it “Creeping Slap.”
It has been a while since we featured a video by Diego Tarantino. Time to change that. Diego shared this clip, and it caught our eyes – and ears. Check out his incredible solo bass performance of “Norwegian Wood” and “With A Little Help From My Friends”.
The new Scary Pockets video once again features bassist Sam Wilkes, who always delivers. But we were absolutely knocked out by India Carney’s vocals on this one. Check out this beautiful take on John Lennon’s “Imagine.”
Anthony Crawford has released a killer new playthrough of the epic “We Are Nothing” by Witherfall. The epic 11-minute song showcases his incredible agility as well as his melodic sense during the breakdown.
Gabriel Severn and his band Teen Town - along with guitarist Giorgio Galimberti - recorded this virtual cover of Tribal Tech’s “Signal Path.” These guys absolutely nailed it!
