It is and I have. Tony Levin’s Beyond The Bass Clef is another good collection of bass/biz anecdotes, but it might be out of print these days.

Thanks i'll have a look as he's had an interesting career too. 

Its on Amazon at £41 for paperback so think i'll give that a miss at moment.

I love that Kiss and Tell bass line. I've never heard the song before.

Excellent use of space in a bass part.

Yeah, i was surprised with that. I’m definitely hearing a Guy Prat style in all these now.

I like all the bass line/story sharing that's coming from the great and good of the low end , but Guy's output is my favourite. It certainly has the best sound IMO.

I cringe ever times JT says ‘bass man’

You're a bit late to the party with this one 🙂

Damn..... he did upload a new one today cos I watched.

He must've took it down for some reason. I copied the most recent video and didnt look at the title. 🤣

You're absolutely correct - I have a notification telling me that there is a new video but it's not there

Got the Toy Matinee album thru last week from US. Took 3 weeks to deliver.

Fantastic album. If you don't already have it you should give it a listen on Youtube.

I’m flippin’ addicted to it. I have to ration myself, it’s that good.

Loving this latest one. Always been a fave bassline of mine and thrilled that people are discovering the Toy Matinee album which has been in my Top 3 albums ever since I first discovered it some 15 years ago....!

Yeah, i was going to mention Bobby as well. I can do it ok, but never really find the right time to do it. In fact i can do it better when playing pick style without a pick. 

I just noticed all that fret buzz in Guys latest video. That would drive me nuts if my bass did that, and it has driven me nuts in the past, but then you hear it in context and its all gone. Just goes to show. 

If my bass doesn’t do that, I know it’s set up wrong.😉
