    Anyone compiled a list of great bass videos? Either instructional or otherwise?


    Bass Day '98 (Wooten, Burbridge, etc)
    Super Session II (Marcus Miller)
    Bill Dickens Bass Beyond Limits
  2. I was just about to start a thread on this same topic. If anyone has any good videos for sale hit me up. I so tired of listening to my guitar players say "dude, I just saw this sweet video, now I can do sweeps, I'm so awesome" I need to get on the ball and learn some new techniques myself so that I too can claim how awesome I am.

    Well, this isn't just about the bassist, and it's not instructional, but sure does kick butt. And it's free to watch online!

    i really liked the jaco pastorius instructional one.. I watched a John Myung - dream theater guy, instructional video and there was some decent info but it wasn't very inspirational. He had so little excitment it was almost like his mom made him practice bass every day and he really hates it.

    Check out the video section, my favorites are the Bass Day '98 jam, Michael Manring's Teen Town tribute, the Vail Johnson vid (just think it sounds pretty cool), and Jaco playing Portrait of Tracy.

    Jaco Pastorious - Modern Electric Bass
    James Jamerson & Bob Babbitt - Standing in the shadows of Motown

    i just bought both of these. the jaco video is amazing. he teaches you techniques and his licks and then james with scofield and kenwood dennard. and he has a duet with jerry jemmott! i haven't checked out the motown one yet but i have heard rave reviews about it.

    WRONG FORUM!! Got nothing to do with basses.

    This needs to be moved to either the "Bassist" forum or maybe the "Instruction" forum.

    Reported for transfer..

    I agree it is the wrong category but why does such an old thread get your dander up so greatly?

    And besides, since when does basses not have to do with bass players? The basses do get played, right?!? :eyebrow:
  16. DUDE, That is THE Herbie Hancock! And he was doing a wave knowing that the machine woudl make that wave noise...he also looked like he was going up in flames there!

    Herbie's great, and if you get teh Head Hunters album the sound quality is dope some of the best grooves and crazy avant garde, funky, inspired jazz in history.

    Awe yea...but I never knew he had a fro like that! :oops:

    It's rediculously no one has posted any reviews of the dvds in the GEAR REVIEW section. This is seriously something that would assist in purchasing videos. Instructional videos can be horrible at times.

    www.bassbooks.com i didn't see if this was mentioned yet but there are some reviews on certains dvds and they seem to have a wide selection.

    In a few days ill be getting the advanced bass dvd with billy sheehan ill tell you guys how i feel about that.
