RIP Jim, May you continue to inspire in your next Journey...
oh man. this one hurts. Such a great teacher. Rip Jim.
Very sad. I only found his channel a few months ago but what an amazing talent and person.
I got to spend some time with Jim, he and his son would visit the store I worked at over 15 years ago. While I haven't had the pleasure of seeing him recently, everything people are saying are right on. Jim was a very good natured, gentle soul who loved to teach. He would be playing a bass in the store and start teaching on the spot, showing people what he was doing and why. He just liked to pass something on to anyone who was open to it. We carried his books, they always were well received. All the best to Jim's family, rest in peace Jim.
Yes, RIP Jim Stinnett. He was a bass professor at Berklee for over 30 years IIRC.
I got to know Jim thru his NH Bass Fest and Bass Clinics. A great series for
several years about 10 miles from my house.
A real loss to the bass community.
If interested check out his CD, Too Low with his friend Rob Gourlay, another bass gem.
His love for teaching us how to lay down the groove is so inspiring.
Sad. Have three of his instructional books — one that is a permanent fixture on the music stand. RIP.
My favorite YouTube bass teacher. I hope they keep his channel up.
Oy, that’s a kick in the gut. Such a nice person and sincere teacher.
Wishing the best for his family.
I have only seen a couple of his videos, I really liked him and wanted to watch more but I didn't know his name.
A real bummer to find out this way...
I've watched a few of his videos. My condolences to his family.
Sorry to hear this. Condolences to his friends and family as well. He was an integral part of my musical journey as with many others. He will be missed. RIP.
Saddened by the news. Jim was an inspiration. I highly recommend his paul chambers transcription books Vol 1-3.
RIP Jim, you will be missed. Your kind spirit and the generosity with which you share your talents are a rare example for those who teach behind you. I hope they leave his channel up for just that purpose.
I really enjoyed his videos and he seemed like such a nice person. How terribly sad. :-(
Awesome guy....had a phenomenal collection Custom Shop Basses he acquired in the past couple of years..great videos..RIP
Never met him, but used some of his books while taking lessons as did my daughter. The one thing that came through his videos when I saw some was...fun!!!!
this is sad ...
people please take polyphenols ... they are good for heart health
Oh no! I have enjoyed the videos of his that I've seen, and I really admire his positive attitude. I'm so sorry. RIP Jim, and thanks.
I am so bummed about this. I love his videos.
