    It’s funny. We’ve actually said this to several bass players: pretend you are dumber. Pretend you know less about music. Pretend you injured two fingers on each hand and can’t use them ...

    Dudes in each case. This is not a gender issue and to portray it that way is absurd. (Not saying you were doing so.)

    I was going to pile on all of you snobs for belittling her because she's an attractive lady. But then I listened to it.

    I find the arrangement disrespects the gravity of the subject of the original song...you don't take the death of a child and make it all cheery like a Paul Simon African number.

    I'm with Jakedog...if this were the audition tape, I'd pass, just based on envisioning future "colourblind" collaborations that miss the point of what made the originals great. "Umm...Smoke on the Water is great...but what if we gave it a Reggae beat and wore matching hats?"

    Tal Wilkenfeld is soooo good. To my ears.

    A pretty blind assumption and demeaning to your fellow members on TDPRI.
    Do you feel like a bigger man now?

    ok that was snide but point being her style of bass playing wouldn't fit a conventional band setting but for what she does do it seems to work. Personally I bet she'd get bored playing basic stuff that works for rock and pop when she's capable of playing something much more complex.

    My first thought would be am I guitarist enough to have her in my band. As stated above like a Tal Wilenfeld.

    I know and have played with a few bassists who were way out of my league, technically. Some are better than others, at 'serving the song'- just like the rest of us. ;)

    She might not even know the story or context of the song. I might not have chosen an up tempo version. Her choice.

    She might not fit into the world/band of many of us here.

    Is she talented and good looking? Of course she is. No denying that.

    I see her in a Weather Report/Return to Forever type band. If indeed her chops would so dictate.

    We have no idea of the extent or experience of her musical prowess from just one sample.

    If schmee wants her in his band. Go for it bud.

    Three pages of comments and people are still talking about her like an unknown entity. Kinga Glyk (the "l" is actually a Polish letter that looks like an "l" with a line through it and is pronounced like a "w") is hugely famous! She tours internationally and plays at major festivals. She never steps on her guitar player's toes because she doesn't have one! She leads the band but all the musicians are superb - mainly keys and drums (her father is the drummer). She's barely twenty, charming and, as you can tell from that video in the first post, very good. She's recently released a major album. Just search her in YouTube and you could spend an afternoon watching her concert footage. I'm certainly a fan.

    No guitar player?! Mebbe someone here could play guitar in her band.

    Apparently there are quite a few guys in this thread who are good enough, or perhaps too good.

    I would guess that he didn't mean YOUR 3 chord cargo shorts bar band specifically. I think he meant just the usual 3 chord cargo shorts bar band. I'm sure The Hoodoo Casters play very complex versions of Dust My Broom or I'm Tore Down. And did I hear a 7th chord on one of your videos?

    :D:)
