Your favourite bass YouTubers ..

Recommended Posts

I also very much like Juliaplaysgroove's channel - she's developed into a very tasteful player with consummate groove - her Dua Lipa stuff is great and very inventive.

She did a video about 5 yrs ago (thus aged 14) of GCS Hair (Larry Graham) - it actually inspired me to learn it for the first time in 45 yrs or so - seems to be a very accurate version as well unlike other on line and bass educator versions. I've also been watching various people doing Release Yourself from GCS's first album - the bass part has double thumbing...... I suppose I'll have to learn to do it to play that (one of my favourite ever Larry Graham bass parts containing just about every fill other bass players have borrowed including me (a good example is the bass breaks in Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is - Rose Royce) - the double thumbing is a work in progress for me lol!!! But progress is being made....

Bass the world is good as is the Bass Whisperer and also, in reasonable doses, Scott's Bass Lessons - I watched the video covering Tony Levin's work on So the other night, and Scott seems to have a doppelgänger with a US accent - he also played Stingrays on the video which must be a first for SBL!!!! 😂😂

I'm in need of these YT channels - it's hard not to come across Scott Devine 
but I've enjoyed the clarity and emphasis on teaching (i.e. not showing off their own skills) of Yonit Spiegelman (she teaches on-line on a platform called LessonFace) : e.g.

The thing I like about Rick Beato's channel is it's about  making music and not about mastering technique on any particular instrument. I get a bit bored with a lot of YT bass and guitar players who are solely focused on speed and complexity rather than making good music.

For some really good live-studio recordings I've been really enjoying guitarist Martm Miller's page: https://www.youtube.com/c/MartinMillerGuitar

He's produced some superb footage with exceptional audio playing everything from 80's mash-ups to playing through Dark Side Of The Moon live - and much more. Full band and guests.

One Million posts!!? 😛

There was some European guy on the Tube many years ago sat in a studio with a rack of vintage P's...beer belly and wearing a cardy.....My goodness could he groove on a 60's P with old flats.  I'd  never heard anything like it before or since.....cant find the darn vid now...maybe he pulled it.

For lessons, I think Talkingbass (Mark Smith) are good, because he gets straight to it, has nice clear uncluttered videos.

 

For learning songs, like some others here, Troy's videos are my go-to.

Yup these videos are top class, plus the band has an incredible bass player in Benni Jud. 

The whole band are incredible and also have amazing guests.

I don't know the guy's name, but the singer who was on their Queen medley video was phenomenal - if you closed your eyes, you'd swear it was actually Freddie. 

Benni Jud is fantastic too - he's also a really good singer. And I love his Marleaux Votan bass.

For me there's no doubt about it that Mark Smith's Talking Bass site is the one to go to. https://www.talkingbass.net/

Unlike some (ahem Davie 504) he's not about showing what he can do although he's a master of the instrument. He cuts to the chase and offers very clear explanations of how to learn certain techniques. His lessons on slap are excellent. 

^^ This!

Hello people!

I’m keen to follow more bass stuff on YouTube. Who do you recommend? 

I’m big into ‘all about the bass’ on Andertons, Scott’s Devine of Scott’s Bass Lessons is interesting to watch too, not just on the Bass Lessons front but with the interviews he does and the brand history sort of stuff - I love all that kinda thing. Adam Aarts does pretty cool gear demos, particularly of pedals to give you an idea of how it sounds on bass, which is what pushed me to buy my Walrus Audio Slö Reverb (which is nuts by the way - might do a review of that soon)  

I’d quite like to find some more interview sort of stuff cause that’s always cool to watch or stuff that engages the audience somehow, like jam tracks, posting in photos whatever! 
 

If anyone’s got any recommendations - put them on me! 

Cheers 😁

I also love all about the bass from anderton's. But I watch my own channel mostly. Seeing as how it's really just a place for me to keep track of the random misc things I come up with on the fly to expand on later, or to check my tone/new gear. Yes, I post videos for me, not you :) well...most of the time.

I think Bassbuzz / Josh Fossgreen is a good channel because he explains things well. Unlike many others he explains ideas with visuals.

Mark from Talkingbass and Scott's channel are only given half marks because of that as it makes it very difficult to see what notes are actually being played. That and other reasons is why I don't subscribe to either anymore. It would help if Mark didn't stand so far away as if he wants us to paint a landscape portrait of him - get closer man! We want to see the fretboard so we can see what's being played. SBL is too clickbaity and he waffles and waffles and waffles and waffles and waffles, and it's like an hour into the video before there's any useful content.

Ryan Madora and Greg's bass shed are good too.

      Hi all, I'm selling my Alembic MK Signature Deluxe with Coco Bolo top, so here is little about the bass.
      Bass has no scratch, no belt buckle scratch, it's almost as brand new, as you can see from pics.
      Scale: 34"
      String spacing: 19 mm
      Fingerboard: Ebony with abalone
      Top: coco Bolo
      Back: Coco Bolo
      Body: Mahogany with maple and purplehearth as accent woods
      Neck: Maple with Purple Hearth stringers
      Finish: clean gloss with satin finish on the neck
      weight: 5.7 kg (with 5 9v batteries that goes into the bass, 4x for LED)
      Electronics: volume, pan, 2x filters, 2x q switches, 1x LED on/off, 1/4" mono output.
      LEDs are amber and red (check pictures)
      Bass was done in 2015, so it has 2+3 machine heads.
      Bass has original case, papers, everything. New one like this is 17.600 dollars, you can check here on Alembic site my bass is Sig Dlx Coco Bolo.
      This is I think only signature bass in EU that is available with this price. For any questions you can contact me. Here are some pic that justify the whole thing, other pics you can see on my dropbox:
      https://www.dropbox.com/sh/huwja8inhg3pt5e/AAAZ_-yhsAWuU_Zi-cx5C75fa?dl=0
       
      Price says 6000 5600 pounds but it's actually 6500 6200 euros, just conversion is different every day.

      Hi everyone,
      I’ve decided to list my old P Bass in favour of something a little more traditional, perhaps with a sunburst and rosewood flavour. Not a desperate sale by any means, but I have a strict 1 in 1 out policy. 
      As you can see, it’s a great example of an old school ash-body, maple-board P Bass. Ready for punk and indie, but can handle soulful RnB all the same.
      I’ve owned the bass for just over five years now, and as a player’s instrument it’s certainly served it’s purpose, so as I’m sure you can understand, it isn’t in collector’s condition. The previous owners have modded the bass over the years as follows:
      Dimarzio PAF pickup - Earlier version of the Model P with the cream cover. Loud and punchy in the mids, but surprisingly dynamic. BadassII bridge installed at some point - Just the badass-est bridge ever! CTS pots - The originals probably wore out. For me, this just ensures the bass works. In 2020 (amidst all the chaos) I had the bass refretted with narrow/tall frets, and as a result it plays like a dream. I chose narrow/tall frets because they feel comfortable to play, and have used Daddario Chromes solidly, meaning there is no wear whatsoever. Even the most small-handed players should feel right at home!
      The body has some wear where a previous owner had fitted and removed a thumb rest, and the neck has some areas where the finish has come away, but this is no way affects playability. The neck actually has some nice flame action towards the top. Please see images.
      I know the important question with basses from the era is the weight, and while I don’t have scales, I’m guessing it’s 4.5-5kg, with most of the weight in the body. I'm 5'7" and around 9.5st, and it has never felt uncomfortable.
      I am looking for a sale at this point, as I hope to fund another bass, but if there is a nice sunburst P Bass out there, I am prepared to exchange with cash your way if needed. And I'm sure it goes without saying, please feel free to get in touch for more pics or info.
      All the best,
      Ad
