Bassist Ray Riendeau is becoming a favorite around here. His latest video, remaking Led Zeppelin’s Kashmir should show you why.
Check out Dave Pomeroy with his Bass Day evening kick off performance of “The Day The Bass Players Took Over The World” (back in the 90’s, we think). We especially loved the “tied up the guitar players with those big ol’ flatwound strings. Sorry boys.” line. (Not to mention the bass playing and that sweet 5 string electric upright.)
Check out bassist Dave Marks, taking a solo break during a Carl Palmer Band concert. We really like the loops he put together, almost as much as the soloing.
In today’s featured vid, bassist Paul Jackson, of Herbie Hancock’s Headhunters band is joined with drummer Mike Clark in a multi-groove compilation. I don’t know if I should just watch or grab my bass and learn all of these. Who am I kidding? I’m going to do both.
Okay, we’re now huge fans of bassist Stuart Clayton, after watching exactly one video. It didn’t hurt that he’s playing the theme from The Simpsons. Or that he nailed it. See for yourself:
