Billy Sheehan is gearing up to do a new video series, and this one is on the gear itself. In this clip, Billy shares his thoughts on how to make a cheap bass play better.
No Treble reader Stefano India sent us this video of his last gig before the lockdown. And it is a great performance. In this clip, his trio performs their version of Weather Report’s “Black Market” (with a lot of bonus music thrown in).
I’m 100% sure none of us would turn down the opportunity to play with the legendary drummer Bernard Purdie. Thanks to technology, Diego Tarantino came up with a way to do that, laying down some funky lines in a play-along video.
Kevin Reginald Cooke sent us his latest video, which is an incredible duo cover he performed with vocalist Mery Bertòs. In this clip, they perform a beautiful cover of “Eye In The Sky” by The Alan Parsons Project.
King Crimson made an appearance on Conan O’Brien’s show in 1995, in support of their album “Thrak”. Here’s a great sounding clip from that show, with Tony Levin and the band performing “Dinosaur”.
Derek Frank sent us the fourth entry in his series of videos recorded live at Palomino Sound in Los Angeles, CA on November 16th, 2020. “Hunker Down” was written by Derek and man, it is funky.
Today’s clip is brought to you by the legend, BrownMark. He gives us some secret sauce and other techniques that create that classic “Grease” that Prince is known for amongst musicians.
Like most of us, Luke McIntosh became pretty obsessed with Joe Dart’s work with Vulfpeck. In the end, Luke transcribed 69 Dart bass lines and broke it all down in this video (with transcriptions).
Rebecca Johnson recently shared this video on Facebook of her band’s last gig before the shutdown last year. In this clip, the band performs a great cover of Des’ree’s “You Gotta Be”. We can’t wait for this to be a thing again.
Liquid Tension Experiment continues to release videos for the latest album, “LTE3”, and this one is different (but still awesome). “If LTE ever had a ‘prog pop hit’ this would be it!”
Prepare for instant stank face, as No Treble favorite Federico Malaman and shining star Áron Hodek give us some “Killer Kid Funk.” Joined with Áron’s brother David on drums, this trio is super funky!
Ryan Madora is back with another incredible lesson video, breaking down one of the all-time great bass grooves, “Express Yourself” by Charles Wright & The Watts 103rd St Rhythm Band.
