Top 10: The Most Watched Bass Videos (January 2021)
For the first month of the new year, the bass videos we shared were quite popular. Here are the top 10 No Treble reader favorites for the month of January 2021.
In addition to being a bass player, I’m also an engineer. I love old microphones and such. I thought this was a cool video detailing how Paul McCartney got his bass sound in his days at Abbey Road. Love that Hofner tone!
Our friend Art Araya sent us this excellent clip of the Adrian Belew Power Trio and their performance of “E”. Julie Slick brings it on this track, and Jordan Perlson is on drums. (And there’s a bonus video, too!)
Bassist Simon Paré sent us this video of a very ambitious performance. Simon got together members of the Canadian Armed Forces Big Band and created an entirely virtual video performance of “Soul Intro” and “The Chicken”.
I’ve been a big fan of Rich Brown for quite a while now. When a man of his talents decides to share knowledge, I pay attention. Rich has released the first video in what hopefully will become a regular thing, focused on time fundamentals.
Our friend Edo Castro Woodhouse shared this on Facebook a few days ago, and I proceeded to watch it countless times. Check out Mark Egan, Arjun Bruggeman, and Shane Theriot performing “Dancing Shiva”.
Leland Sklar shared this video on Facebook, from a November 2020 session at Judith Owen’s house. In this clip, Judith, Lee, and Pedro Segundo perform “Arianne”, with some tasty lines and harmonics by Lee, who really drives the tune.
Zander Zon is back with another stunning solo bass performance. This time, he takes on James Horner’s “The Princess Pleads For Wallace’s Life” from “Braveheart”.
Today, we’re super excited to help premiere a new playthrough video by Ryan Martinie for Soften The Glare’s “Turn Around”. The track, which opens their 2017 debut “Making Faces”, features the bassist’s signature style.
In episode two of his new YouTube show, Bass Nation, bass legend Stanley Clarke talks about a question he gets from students of all levels: How do I find my sound? Verdine White and Thundercat joins him in the discussion.
Back in December, Kevin shared the exciting news that Liquid Tension Experiment was about to release a new album. In the meantime, the band has released a video for the track, “The Passage Of Time” - and it is killer.
