MonoNeon’s playing never ceases to amaze me, and this clip of him covering a Mahavishnu Orchestra song is why. The bassist grooves hard on the song “Miles Beyond” in this video from a concert in Memphis, Tennessee. As always, MonoNeon puts his own spin on it with an incredible solo. Keyboardist Lance Lucas and drummer Anthony Knox help to provide...
No Treble reader Jymmy Tolland sent us this video of his band Bobaflex covering Pink Floyd’s “Hey You.” “I wrote and rewrote for days trying to do both Water’s and Gilmour’s bass parts justice on our version without being a total style biter,” he shared. “Give it a look and let me know what you think!” We love it. How...
No Treble reader Leland Nelson sent us this video of an all-bass arrangement he worked on of Marcus Miller’s “Scoop,” from Miller’s Master of All Trades DVD. “Basses include a Fender Marcus Miller Signature, a Conklin GT-7, and an upright I borrowed from DePauw University where I currently attend,” Leland shared.
Diego Tarantino sent us another one of his excellent solo bass covers. This time around, Diego performs Stevie Wonder’s “Overjoyed,” using two bass tracks.
Today’s video doesn’t feature a complicated bass line, but it more than makes up for that. Ewan Cunningham is an 18-year-old multi-instrumentalist who started out on drums at the age of 4. “…Now I’m branching out into other instruments such as guitar, bass, keyboards, and vocals. I’ve been teaching myself to mix, record and film music since I was 10...
Zander Zon and his fretless bass are back with another fantastic solo bass cover. In this clip, Zander performs his arrangement of Ed Sheeran’s “Castle on the Hill.” Enjoy.
Craig Harris sent us this video saying, “I know this comp gets overplay, but this is impressive and I think should be featured.” This has the be the highest energy version of “The Chicken” ever. Jay Stave is the bassist in this trio, with Valeriy Stepanov on keys and Paul Kholodyanskiy on drums.
Diego Tarantino has shared another impressive video with us. This time around, Diego takes on Charles Mingus’s excellent “Self-Portrait in Three Colors,” on double bass, electric bass, and keys.
Cody Wright shared this video on Facebook, and it is blowing up. Cody teamed up with vocalist Elise Testone (who made the finals on the eleventh season of American Idol) for this terrific arrangement of Michael Jackson’s “Black or White.”
Chris DeAngelis is back with another killer looping bass cover. This time he knocked it out of the park with Michael Jackson’s “I Can’t Help It.” After setting up a percussive groove, he lays out the melody and bass line at the same time. Then he loops the groove and kicks off an ear-bending solo. Dig it:
