Scary Pockets is back with another cover – sometimes chill, and sometimes funky. Featuring vocalist/drummer Elise Trouw, the band covers Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams.” Nick Campbell provides the foundation on a 1965 Fender P-Bass.
Christian Kussmann sent us this video of his band Fremde Federn. The band performs their own interpretations of popular tunes, like this one: Nirvana’s “Come As You Are”.
I’ve played sax almost as long as I’ve played bass, so this video by The Fearless Flyers hits me on many levels. In this clip, the Flyers cover the Vulfpeck tune, “Adrienne & Adrianne.” Both versions feature the mighty Joe Dart!
No Treble reader, bassist, and author Chuck Bianchi sent us this stunning video of him performing J.S. Bach’s “Gigue in D minor” on bass guitar.
Like most of us, Huw Foster has missed playing live these past few months. So he started a series of live looping videos to try to recreate that feeling. Check out this funky clip, “LiveLoop 4”.
No Treble reader and Nashville-based bassist Austin George Solomon shared this video with us, featuring his tune, “Ventnor Avenue.” The trio includes Grant Garland on Rhodes and Jordan Perlson on drums. I dig the bass tone and anything with a Rhodes piano!
Spyro Gyra brought some joy during this time of isolation with this virtual video they shared last week. The band decided to put together a medley of early songs from their career, with “Shaker Song,” “Catching The Sun,” and “Morning Dance.”

Vulfpeck has announced a new album, “Inside the Mind of Woody Goss”, which features all of Woody’s Vulf compositions on one record. Here’s the video of the tune “Radio Shack”, with Joe Dart on the Joe Dart Bass.
The start of a new month means it’s time to celebrate some new bass gear in our monthly “Bass Gear Roundup.” Here are the top 10 reader favorite bass gear stories for the month of June 2020.
We've said before: we're so thrilled with Leland Sklar’s Youtube videos over the past few months. Here's one he posted a few days ago after being asked to perform a cover of “Easy Lover” (he had the chart).
Back in April, I discovered the REO Brothers band and their incredible cover of “Penny Lane.” I’ve finally gotten the chance to go through more of their videos, and while they’re all fantastic, I really enjoyed their cover of “Something.”
