No Treble reader Zvonimir Bucevic sent us this video, and it is incredible. Check out this Stanley Clarke solo during a Return to Forever concert in 1972. Legend!
Scary Pockets is back with another funk cover video. They’re joined by guest vocalist Colin Jamieson and bassist Sean Hurley in this remake of The Rolling Stones’ “Beast of Burden”.
Another great week in the books, so it is time to look back. This week on No Treble, we featured two interviews, some exciting news from Geddy Lee, a killer, funky bass lesson by Rich Brown, new bass gear, and more.
The REO Brothers bring it in every video I’ve seen. This new one is no different. The brothers take on Electric Light Orchestra’s “Mr. Blue Sky”, with Ralph Otic on bass and backing vocals.
No Treble reader Lukas Pamminger sent us the latest video he’s on, and we’re really digging the music. Check out the fantastic trio, DR!PTRiO, and their tune, “Krama”.
Federico Malaman is bringing it on his Youtube channel. Here’s a great lesson video he just shared, focusing on playing octaves in 16th notes in the style of Jaco Pastorius. He said this is how we “become Olympic champions of dance style bass lines!”
YYNOT is on the road for some long-awaited live shows, and they’re also gearing up to release a new album. They’re giving us a preview of what’s to come on “Light And Shade” with this first track, “Burning Bridge”.
Our good friend Marcelo Yakko emailed me this video. In this clip, Marcelo plays along to his fantastic track, “The Kitchen”, which appears on his album, “Boomerang”. This is a killer song with a killer band!
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.
Happy Sunday! Here’s a look back at the latest in the world of bass. Here are the No Treble top 10 reader favorites for the week.
If it wasn’t for Fleetwood Mac, No Treble may have never existed. We can thank John McVie’s tasty bass lines for inspiring me as a kid. Here’s a fantastic video from 1976, with the band performing “Over My Head”.
Juliaplaysgroove’s cover videos are always so fun to watch. She always adds something to each one, and in this clip, she shows her versatility once again.
