Here are the top 10 No Treble reader favorite videos for the month of May 2021.
You asked for more Synth Bass, and we delivered. In today’s clip, we’re checking out Michael Jackson’s “Man In The Mirror”. Legendary keyboardist Greg Phillinganes handles bass duties on this tune. Greg is an absolute monster on synth bass!
In this clip, we hear the isolated bass track for the Bee Gee’s #1 classic, “You Should Be Dancing”. The tone coming from that P Bass is glorious, and Maurice Gibbs’s playing is rock solid on this tune. A great lesson on pocket bass playing!
Our good friend Damian Erskine has been rocking it with his Bass Education platform and sharing valuable lessons on Youtube as well. In this one, Damian focuses on turning scales into music.
78 years ago today, the great Jack Bruce was born. For many of us, he changed the world of bass forever. Here’s a great clip of Jack performing live in 1990 with Rory Gallagher, doing their thing on “Born Under A Bad Sign.”
The Prince Estate and Paris Saint-Germain have released a video from a 2014 performance in Paris, France. The “CRAZY2COOL” medley features Ida Nielsen on bass, with a killer solo.
1983 was definitely a good year. A shift in music was happening. David Bowie and Nile Rodgers hooked up to produce one of the biggest records of the 80s, “Let’s Dance”. Here’s Carmine Rojas’s isolated bass track layered with synth bass.
In 2014, Simon Wood-Harris shared a video for his Unidentified Flying Project. “There is a Dream” was a huge hit for readers, thanks in part to Pino Palladino. Seven years later, we get to hear more, with their tune, “Dance The Rain”.
John McLaughlin recently shared this video of Thelonious Monk’s “Straight No Chaser”, to raise awareness and donations for COVID relief in India. Bassist Jean Michel “Kiki” Aublette backs the band and takes a great solo.
In this video, Josh DuBois and Tim Starace rip through 23 of their favorite Geddy Lee bass lines. I love that Tim chose that epic riff on “La Villa Strangiato.” What’s your favorite?
Today is Ryan Madora’s birthday, but she’s the one giving us a gift. In this new lesson video, Ryan breaks down the great bass line to “Tighten Up” by Archie Bell & The Drells.
