Examples of Ladies playing bass (better than you)
I really like that gal in the second video. Those were some of the tastiest fills I've ever heard. 2:45-2:50 area is great, and 3:00 out is top notch. What a player.
Also worth checking out Mohini Dey and Esperanza Spalding. Both amazingly good in very different ways.
Yeah. Agreed. I hope this will be a lady bass affirmative thread.
And I loved Alessandra's facial expressions while she was just killing that bass.
I think we will hear more of Alessandra. Great tone, Precise playing with great accent. Someone give Jeff Beck a call.
I didn't even know I was being considered for the gig!
What's there not to love? Three talented bassists sharing their art with the rest of us. I really liked the tone of the basses in the last two clips, no offense to Tal. Hers was live and therefore from a different source, obviously.
You ARE getting forgetful.
We weren't. I think OP was just tryimg to make us feel better.
She’s great but doesn’t post that much. Neither does Marta now that I think of it.
Wonder if there’s some reason these skilled female musicians don’t post often. Just kidding, we all know the reason.
I'm not sure which one she outclasses me on the most. .....bass groove or voice.
I'm glad that's the intent. My read of the title and first post was "it's odd and unusual that a woman can be a great bass player".
Imagine "dude you lost the gig" with a video of Victor or Marcus or Pattitucci. Yep, I'd lose the gigs to them too.
But yes, there are some amazing bass players out there, and some of them are women.
Gail's live duet with Bowie on "Under Pressure" is highly recommended. I guess she is finding her way as a solo artist now.
And the award for the most sexist, tone deaf thread on talkbass goes to ...
To which comment in particular are you referring? I have a wife and a daughter, and haven't read anything yet that would offend me if said about either of them.
Q&A with Polish musician Kinga Glyk - considered the best jazz/blues bassist representing the young generation
What does to be a female artist in a “Man’s World” as James Brown says? What is the status of women in music?
I'm quite happy to live in a 'Man's World.' I'm pretty sure that this state of affairs, that a man is the strong leading force has been planned from above. I think that the same principle applies to music. Men are stronger and we can see it, for instance, in the way they play on an instrument. Women on the other hand are more sensitive and softer. I don't think that we can say whether one is better or worse from the other. They definitely differ and each has something special to offer, which we can hear in music. Seeing a female bass guitar player is gradually becoming more common, and I have to admit that I have never experienced any form of criticism concerning my choice of instrument, quite the opposite is true, it's perceived as an asset.
