We did, while grocery shopping in Pasadena! 😮
I don't think he's a member here. I think he's on Talkbass though, but I visit there very rarely, so I can't comment on that.

Edit: THIS thread.

Just watched the first 5 of these. 

What a lovely man he seems and I am SO envious of his technique. Making his bass and amp do the work rather than his fingers. Would love to be able to train myself to do that.

Day 3 - I Missed Again

 

I went in this thinking, that’s an easy song. I remember the album original and it’s sparse “swing” feel but wow!. Some freedom for the big man and by Jove he exploits it!  Really magical! It’s as if he’s playing it in a three piece band!

He is rather good, don't you think?😀

It seems Lee has been blocked by Facebook for 30 days and as a result won't be posting his videos 😞.

Yes, I saw that. I'm not sure why that prohibits his posting videos on You Tube though.

I'm also not sure which FB account is his official one. The ones I follow seems to be working.

I think because in his eyes, he’s posting the videos for his followers on Facebook?

It doesn't make a lot of sense to me though.

His You Tube channel hasn't been up long and it has over 11k subscribers already. I'm still not sure which of the Leland Sklar pages on FB is actually his. I'll assume it's the one with 83k.

Give it a little more time and the YT channel will be right up there. Wish he would just carry on putting them on YT.

He's got quite a raw basic tone, amazing what actually works in context.

At the end of the above video, he talks about his set-up for these YT clips and it is very basic: he apologisies for the sound and his playing!
