Deed I recon...
Is that ‘Tears in Heaven’? Quite a beautiful arrangement.
It's incredibly impressive. On many levels.
But I wouldn't hire her.
Very impressive, but you would still need someone to play the bass part.
First thing I thought was, she would make a great guitarist.
Only 4 strings, she'd be better off with a tenor banjo...
This thread reminds me of states n waldorf
Amazing, regardless of the snide comments.
Where they snide? The title is "she can play bass in my band!". And the comments pointed out it was impressive, but you'd still need a bass player. Which is true. She didn't play the bass part. And nothing in that video showed that she could or would. I was a bit surprised that she didn't hold down the baseline on the low strings while playing the melody, to be honest. Is that snide? She might be a great bass player with great groove who locks-in incredibly with a drummer. But the video offers no evidence of that.
She's talented, beautiful, and has her own hat.....just not what I look for in a bass player.
I'd like to see her and Tal Wickenfeld (sp?) pickin' together, that'd be a trip.......JH in Va.
Memorizing, and picking out a melody on the bass, is not playing bass guitar. The ability to properly lock in to a groove, work with the drummer/percussionist, and maintain a steady, constant, and unwavering beat is the main requirements of a good bassist. None of this is demonstrated in this video.
That poor young lass. I don't know how she's going to make it through life, with no discernable talent, no looks and living in a tiny attic.*

Very impressive...she's have to be in a band with some folks who know how to stay out of her way...maybe a trio with a drummer and keyboardist, or a very smart guitarist who can double her solos on limited songs and just support her elsewhere.
I agree with the others, while it is impressive playing, she is not playing "Bass"!
Wouldn't it be kinda boring if she'd done a video playing, "I.....V.....VI......IV......I......V.......etc."?
I willing to bet that this isn't how she plays 100% of the time in a band.
I do agree about the issues of her being in a band, though. Just the thought of "the look" my wife would give me ... <sound of testicles shrivelling/>.
I didn't see anything snide. It absolutely is amazing. As I said- on many levels.
But if I were looking for a bass player and this is the demo video she sent me, I'd not hire her. That's all.
Cool, talented... would this even be posted here if it was a guy playing it?
I agree that although very talented and taking the bass into a multi octave leaving some bass strings to ring and then playing above the 12th fret in the guitar register sounds cool as a solo performer but that would not sound good in a band context with a guitar in the mix. A bass player that plays above the 12th in the guitar octave like this usually can't restrain themselves and play the bass part when it fits the song.
In a band I really can't stand this style of bass playing because the bass and guitar are in the same octave unless the guitar player is also above the 12th fret all the time. It sounds bad to me when the bass and the guitar are having a sword fight in the same octave.
As a solo player getting extra points for being a pretty girl... I guess so.
As a bass player in a band... no, I would not want to be in that band.
This would be more comparable to a baritone guitar solo.
I knew my Whammy pedal would come in handy someday.
