Here's a thing. I partly learned by watching a VCR (yeah I'm old) in about 1991. It had real basic stuff, playing position, fingers, how to... all sorts. Demo'd a few scales, basic lines. He was really careful and clear with his teaching - almost too simple in some ways, but it was for beginners not just bass playing but music in general.
Then at the end the teacher/player, black fella, did the most amazing bass solo including slow intro, funky finger lines, decent slap, chords & everything. It was 'wow' for me!
Problem is, I lost the video & can't remember anything: bloke's name, video title, nothing... except... I remember his basses!
For the lessons, he played a red (Yamaha?) 4-string.
For the solo he played the most beautiful natural G&L L2000 (had a cracking sound).
Anyone got any ideas on this? I'd love to hear that solo again.
