Billy Sheehan doesn’t THINK anything! He knows. If you think he doesn’t
know, it’s because you don’t have a clue. That’s why hes so awesome and you
are not. GO BILLY!
I guess you feel good under them lights, but to be honest I wish it was a
little better lit up there
I’m quite surprised that the subject of scale length didn’t come up early
I don’t even play bass. Why am I here or better yet: why did I enjoy this
so much and why did I watch the whole thing?
Oh God even Billy thinks magnetic pickups pickup the sound of wood.
Oh well, everything else is good info at least.
Never heard of the (very liberating) ‘floating thumb’ technique Billy? No
best lesson ever!
What a genuine guy who happens to be one of this planet’s truly great
electric bassists! Great groover but as sololist? He might be greatest
ever. I’ll stand by that statement. But he communicates so straight to the
point for beginners. He knows right where to hitcha.
Not only one of the greatest bass players to ever walk on earth, but
probably the best teacher I’ve seen as far as explaining bass is concerned.
I love listening to what he is saying as much as I love listening to his
billy I can see that you are a great bass player but when you are showing
the basics of the left hand you can intiminate a beginner on how fast you
move your notes from one fret to another. go slower so I can see how you
hold and can recognize the notes you are holding.
Been playing guitar for many years, starting to get into bass. This was
really helpful, picked up some good warmup and hand strengthening
exercises. I went to music school for a semester and learned some theory
(modes, intervals, all that)…I like Billy’s honesty of not knowing
theory…he knows he’s doing it, he just doesn’t know what to call it. This
is what music school can do to you, get you all crazy over theory and
technicalities and you forget about the music. There are many ways to learn
something, school is just one of them. Don’t let anyone tell you there’s
only one way or a best way. Do whatever works for you. We’re all
Wow, he really plucked up…
I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Sheehan around 1989 or so with Mr. Big.
They played the New Daisy Theatre in Memphis. He really took alot of time
talking to me and was really nice and down to earth. Great guy, and a
phenominal bassist. He and Jaco Pastorius are my favorite bassists. Victor
Wooten is excellant, too.
So basically this is a basic video about the bases of playing a basic bass
way cool thanks man u the man Billy thanks bro
no idea why i watched this but im glad i did. the bar on the pick guard was
driving me crazy as to its purpose. learn something new everyday
Sound advice intelligently explained
good stuff tobad i didnt start here
What bass is that?
4:32: “There are no rules as far as how a bass should be held or how it
should be played” Please cease to believe everything is predefine, should
be learn and followed. This is exactly why this guy is sitting on this
chair. He created something.
I had never seen that Billy played slapping.
I heard that he was not good at slapping, but he could.
Sorry I just fell asleep
So much good stuff, so well delivered! Try and watch it all initially, then
chunk it up to suit your needs. Something in here for all of us. Thanks
exactly what i wanted..everything basic from the scratch. Thanks!
