Sheryl Crow...the bassist?

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by Jaswine85, Dec 11, 2002.

  1. I was just watched Sheryl Crow perform on Conan O'Brien. Normally id turn it off during these parts, but to my suprise, she was playing bass! The lines were simple mind you, and she probably didnt even write them, but shes without a doubt the hottest bassist i've ever seen. Anyway...does anyone know if she plays bass on her albums and just fakes the guitar in the videos, or what? Just wondering...

    Yeah, she's always played bass as long as I've seen/heard her. Whether she writes it or not is another question, but I would imagine that she does. In some videos, she plays guitar(or at least holds it; you know how videos are) but that just might be for the 'look.'

    I saw an interview where she said that she was using bass to write songs as it meant she didn't have to decide on the type of chord until later in the process - so this gave her more freedom about where the melody line went.

    I can see the point of this as a lot of singer/songwriters do sound limited - it's like once they have decided the chord sequence, there are only so many notes they can use and it's almost "set in stone" at that point. With just a bass line to bounce ideas off of - you have more possibilities - in many ways it's harder, so an interesting idea.

    By the way, besides the bass, she also plays pretty decent guitar and very nice piano.
  9. She has a degree in Music.

    She also is qualified in hubba hubba yowsa!

    At the three live performances of hers that I've been to, she's played:

    Keyboards, Hammond, Guitar, Bass, Accordian, Harmonica and Congas.
