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.
The first time we shared a video by Rebecca Johnson was back in 2011. Over the years, more and more videos have come along, and we’ve continued to feature them.
Each time, readers respond with tons of clicks and comments. Johnson’s trio (and sometimes quartet) is as impressive as we’ve seen, but it’s the bass playing that gets us every time.
Here are the videos that landed Johnson in the fifth slot for this year’s reader favorites.
