International Society of Bassists ( @ISB_World) recently put out a post featuring Randy Kurtz talking about tennis elbow for bassists. This is something that affects a great number of bassists, and this video is well worth a viewing for a better understanding of the condition.
Check out this video of bassist Thierry Barbé (my friend that I met serving together on the board of the
International Society of Bassists) performing the Dvorak Cello Concerto on bass!
Check out this very cool video of two masters of jazz bass, featuring excellent arco solos from both Lynn and Christian. Good stuff via
Lynn Seaton and Christian McBride – YouTube.
If you’ve never seen one of Gary Karr’s Japanese TV appearances, this is going to blow your mind. Via
TenetArepo on reddit. I can’t believe that I played a recital on that exact bass about 10 years ago!
Check out this great video of Gary Karr in his prime on the bass! Via
For more great Gary Karr content, check out
Barry Lieberman’s interview from 2008. Lots of great conversation and bass playing.
