    Hello, Hello, Hello!
    I'm relatively new to playing bass and was curious if anyone could recommend accounts to follow on social media like Twitter or Instagram - something to inspire, or learn or just cool bass stuff.

    There are a few bass related posters on Twitter that I follow - No Treble being the main one.

    I love Leland Sklar's YouTube series. Basically you're hanging out with Santa except at the end he talks about bass stuff and plays along with a song.

    +1 on No Treble and Leland Sklar. Scott's Bass Lessons has good stuff, as does Daric Bennett's Bass Lessons. And welcome to TB!

    I can't believe I wasn't following Mr. Sklar. Corrected. :D

    Bass The World is also one heck of a cool YouTube channel.

  9. +1 on Scottsbasslessons . Type in the name of a song you want to play and you can find all sorts of guys playing it . A guy named Davie also iz a hell of a bassist .

    Two YouTube channels I like are Low End Lobster (great reviewer) and Jared Dines (yes, he is primarily a guitar player). They are both charismatic, informative and leave me inspired.

    I really like Or Lubianiker, but he hasn't been active for awhile. Lots of gear reviews/samples.

    These are the Instagram accounts I follow.

    John Patitucci. One who needs no introduction. A true master of his craft.
    Login • Instagram

    Federico Malaman. One of the best bass players in the history of bass players, maybe ever. Italian-born.
    Login • Instagram

    Junior Braguinha. Beast of Brazil.
    Login • Instagram

    Evan Marien. A new favorite, well-studied and a great player.
    Login • Instagram

    Fun account showing cool, short clips of different bassists every day.
    Login • Instagram

    An insanely talented drummer whose touch is wildly reminiscent of Buddy Rich.

    Real Bass Lessons on YouTube. Jim Stinnett is the presenter and he has absolutely wonderful instructional videos for all levels as well as genres!
     
  18. Not big on the "Online Bass Lessons" with Scott or Jim or whomever. And Adam Neely was a complete waste of time for me. Because teachers are required to answer questions, and they...don't. And their teaching...meh. They could really benefit from feedback.

    Follow Janek Gwizdala @janekbass. He has a lot of videos on the YouTubes. Lots about bass playing, musicianship, and life. Probably the best channel about what it's actually like to be a musician in the world.

    Follow BassTheWorld on YT, because Gregor and Rene do good reviews and are honest.

    Follow Thomann's Guitars & Basses on YT because not only can Julia play, she's a great fan and interviewer.

    Follow the bassists that you like who are active on social media like Nathan East, Billy Sheehan, Federico Malaman, and Hadrien Feraud. And definitely follow Victor.

    Ed Friedland does good reviews and is a good guy.

    I really value youtube for bass, but I personally don't use instagram, facebook, or twitter anymore. I waste more time there and I could be playing or exercising. I just find them toxic.

    Second Ed Friedland, Juliaplaysgroove, and any of the Warren Huart Produce like a Pro featuring bass players.... and Premier Guitar Rig Rundown that has bass. Actually, I would watch those for any genre or style of music. I dig the gear and the players.
