Pomplamoose is back with a new video. Joined by guest vocalist KT Tunstall, here’s their cover of U2’s “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.” I especially enjoyed what bassist Nick Campbell did with it.
GrooveTech has expanded its line of multi-tools with the Mini-Multi, a compact device loaded with tools for bass and guitar. Sizes are made in both metric and inch to support most makes and models.
Ulrich BassDesign has unveiled a new line of basses called the Retro 57 Series. Handcrafted in their workshop in Germany, the basses are inspired by the instruments, cars, and lifestyle of the 1950s.
I don’t know why it took me so long to discover Gev Delano and his videos, but I’m glad I did. After a bit of research, I found that he’s 10 years old. But that didn’t stop him from taking on a monster of a tune: Jaco’s “Havona”.
Gabriel Riccio and Trey Gunn have teamed up for the mammoth task of creating a new score book called “King Crimson: The Discipline Era Transcriptions”. The 256-page book features full-band transcriptions from Crimson’s fruitful ’80s era.
Ryan Madora is back with a new “Lightbulb Moment” column. In this edition, Ryan talks about the benefits of playing slow - and even ties in a great food analogy.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the Zildjian LIVE! video series, but this is the one I was hoping would happen. In this clip, the legendary Dennis Chambers joins Ghost-Note (with MonoNeon on bass). This one is so great. Even the false start is great!
Kenny James has added a new volume to his catalog with “Invisiblemann Vol. 14: Remain Invisible”. In an amazing act of gratitude, the artist is giving away one of the basses he used to record the album.
I really got into the self-titled Black Pumas album when it first came out. Then I bought the deluxe edition, which includes some great new material. Here’s the band (with Brendan Bond on bass) performing “I’m Ready”.
One of the biggest obstacles for musicians is the dreaded odd-time signature. That’s why Marek Bero decided to expand his “Bass Gym 101” series with a new book on the topic.
The Jimi Hendrix Estate has released another live performance from the vault. “Live in Maui” combines a new documentary with two full sets from July 30, 1970. The guitar legend was backed by drummer Mitch Mitchell and bassist Billy Cox.
Scary Goldings is one of my favorite bands right now. Here’s the band, with Tim Lefebvre on bass, performing “Bondgirl”. Tim is laying it down on his De Armond Star Fire bass. (And I just want to say how much I dig the B3.)
