It’s always great to see a video with Wes Stephenson hit the feed. In this clip, Wes performs with the Mark Lettieri Group for a live-streamed show at the Guitar Sanctuary in McKinney, TX on Aug. 22, 2020.
Back in July, Mike Portnoy, Stu Hamm, Paulie Z, Walter Ino got together virtually to record something in support of the David Z Foundation. They chose Rush’s “YYZ” as the tune, and Stu threw in some cool slap and tap lines throughout.

The Faces “Stay with Me” is one of my all-time favorites, thanks in large part to Ronnie Lane’s all-time great bass line. Here’s a clip of the band performing the tune on the BBC program “Sounds For Saturday” on October 26, 1971.
August was a great month for videos on No Treble. Reader views were up, and there’s quite a diverse line-up this time around. Here are your top 10 favorite videos for the month.
No Treble reader Teodoras Balciauskis reached out to us with a new video he’s recently recorded. “This one features multiple interesting bass playing techniques and blends in electronic music to bring together such an emotional piece,” he shared.
Scott King sent us this video, and we’re digging the creativity (and the tune!) “I wrote this tune based on the sound I heard from a washing machine... basically a really fast train groove (I actually slowed it down to 160 bpm),” he shared.
The great Melvin Lee Davis just dropped an epic video featuring a brand-new tune. Written by Davis and keyboardist Mike Cee Carpenter, here’s the funky “J-Dub Walkin’.”
The Immediate Family are rocking in this new video they shared a few days ago. And Leland Sklar is looking mighty cool in this one too.
Here’s another fantastic clip from The Beat-Club’s archives, which features Emerson, Lake & Palmer performing live at The Lyceum Theatre in London. By some strange coincidence, this performance of “Knife-Edge” was recorded exactly 50 years ago today.
