Editor’s Note: At the end of each year, we tally up all the article and video views on No Treble to come up with a list of the top 10 most popular bassists. This is entirely based on readership, not on opinions, polls, or anything else. Just having some fun.
This is where the 2021 Reader Favorite Bassists list gets interesting – and exciting to us. While the names so far are some of the biggest in the world of bass historically, the web (and Youtube) has given us exposure to so many other talented bassists around the world.
One of those is Julia Hofer, who routinely shares some videos that capture the attention of No Treble readers.
Thanks to those videos, Julia lands at the #4 spot on this year’s list.
Julia Hofer is back with another “Top 5” video, and this time, she’s focusing on the incredible work of Pino Palladino. Choosing just 5 bass lines by Pino seems next to impossible, so Julia narrowed it down to some of her all-time favorites.
After recently discovering the video series featuring Julia Hofer, I’ve been checking out a lot of the entries. In this one, Julia picked her favorite bass lines from Carol Kaye’s massive catalog and played along to the tracks.
Julia Hofer is back with another great video showcasing one of the great bass lines. In this one, Julia Hofer plays along with Stevie Wonder’s “Do I Do”. If that’s not enough, Julia shows off her multi-tasking skills to David504.
