Comment on Youtube Rocco Prestia Vid..

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by albertofrog, Mar 9, 2010.

  1. I was just surfing for some funk style inspiration on youtube and came across this :


    but what really got me was this comment on the vid...

    "When I first got started on bass, I tried to be flashy. We were playing this old country dive outside Yazoo City, MS and I was showing my butt. I noticed this old black man watching me, with a big frown on his face. During a break I walked over to him to see what was wrong. He shook his head and said "Boy, bass players and drummers 'sposed to make like a catfish and hang out on the bottom." I never forgot it. Rocco mastered it."

    :):) made me smile anyway....

    In my second band ever (just out of high school) I received the same kind of feedback from the band leader, an older cat from Oakland who used to hang the TOP guys before they blew up.
