With the tragic news of the passing of Eddie Van Halen, Charles Berthoud decided to record a tribute. He asked his fans for suggestions, and “Eruption” made the list. Charles pulled off this tall task with a fantastic bass version of the iconic tune.
Ryan Madora has been sharing some excellent videos on her Youtube channel this year. Here’s a recent one where she breaks down a blues shuffle in the style of the great Duck Dunn.
It has been a while since we’ve seen a video by Lake Street Dive, but they’ve just released a new and powerful song about the times we’re in.
Master bassist Joel Quarrington has been spending his extra time this year to nail down a piece he’s been studying for a long time. Luckily, he had the finished product recorded. Bach’s Preludio was written for violin and requires some serious agility on the bass.
Kinga Glyk said “There are some bass lines I just want to know how to play… I tried to figure out what Joe Dart is playing in this song… woooow crazy!!” The tune is Vulfpeck’s “It Gets Funkier IV”, and Kinga nails it.
My first experience seeing Áron Hodek play was at a Winter NAMM Show (he was 8 years old). I’ve followed him ever since. Here’s a great clip of Áron (now 9), grooving hard in this play-through of Dua Lipa’s “Levitating.”
Our friend Randall Webb sent in this clip of The Byrds tearing through an epic version of “Eight Miles High” at the Fillmore East in 1970. The band’s lineup at the time was the quartet of Roger McGuinn, Clarence White, Gene Parsons, and Skip Battin.

It has been four years ago since Vulfpeck released the epic tune, “Dean Town“. There have been many covers over the years, but this new one by Nathan Navarro is pretty unique. Check out Nathan covering the tune on his Mayones Cali 4 HS mini bass.
On this day in 1944, the mighty John Entwistle was born. Here’s the Ox bringing the thunder on “Won’t Get Fooled Again”, from the 1979 film, “The Kids Are Alright”.
