    I really enjoyed this video. I think Julia might have been using rounds because her tone is too bright in places, but I think she does a great job of getting Carol Kaye’s feel. She also does a good job of explaining how her harmonic knowledge made her such a great bassist.

    Looks and sounds like new TI Flats to me. They start out on the bright side mellow with age and play. She is also muting with her hand instead of Carols method. I’m sure at time it isn’t getting the same result.

    Those are not TI flats(edit: looks like Rotosounds with the ball ends), I love them on certain basses. They are a life saver for my fingers(nerve damage sucks), the TI rounds are pretty good too.

    Carol Kaye would never stand for downstrokes only and holding your hand like her, but it sounded good. They're flats BTW.

    Nice tone and demonstration! Was hoping to see her do "Games People Play" by Mel Torme... Whenever I want to kick my own butt on bass, I pull out the music for that tune. :)
