Merry Christmas!!

Hey everyone! Just a quick post to say a massive thank you for all the support I've had in my first year (6 months!) of running this blog! In this short time you bass lovers have managed to give me 8500 YouTube views, 6500 blog views, 1400 SoundCloud plays and almost 600 downloads of my transcriptions which I find pretty unbelievable really!

So thanks again, keep checking out my posts and videos and I'll keep putting them up! Don't be scared to leave me a comment and let me know what you want to see too!

A very merry Bassmas to you all, see you in the new year!

Lick Of The Month #7

Our last lick of 2012 is here, and it's a whopper!! It's a 3 bar long triplet assault played by Joe Henderson on Horace Silver's 'Song For My Father'.

The lick can be heard on this version of the song at about 4:20 over 3 bars of F-7.

Take The A Train Transcription

This week I've been looking at 'Take The A Train' and more importantly how bass legend, Anthony Jackson, played a chorus from it! Out of all the great versions out there I picked this one to see how an electric bassist tackles it rather than an upright player like all the other transcriptions I have done so far.
