I must admit, this show was probably one of the most fun shows I’ve played in a looooooooong while. I had my partners in crime next to me helping me along the way. Shout out to Paul Tressell and Sean Deel!
Keith Bryant is an awesome performer, and all around cool guy. He dismissed all my mistakes and smiled whenever he threw a song at me that i didnt know.
“I’ve never met this man in my entire life. My bass player is out of town and Brad was happy to step in with no rehearsals. He is doing a fine job, Im really impressed” – Keith Bryant
Go on Itunes and download Keith Bryant’s new single “Cant Tell Somebody(Who To Love)”. I really like the song…easy listening for sure!
Thank you Keith Bryant & Iron Horse for forgiving my mistakes. Hope you guys had as much fun as I did!
Im trying to learn these country tunes for a gig i have Nov 5th for Keith Bryant & Iron Horse. Since im mainly an RnB/Hip Hop/Soul/Rock/Ska guy…country is killin me for some reason. This particular tune is very funky..i like it. Whomever the bassist is, is a bad motha shut my mouf! He has a solo towards the end that i know i messed up. But its all good. Hopefully by next week i’ll have it down packed and ready.
First and foremost, thanks to my brothers from another for their support and encouragement. Jeff Hoffman, Cyrus Pace, Ben Mars, and especially a big huge thanks to Blyss. If there is one man that would knock the procrastination out of ya..its that guy!
So today, i decided to stop reading and finally pick up the Upright and play it. I dont have the tone i would like, but im working on it. Technique is EVERYTHING. I finally see that there is NO SHORTCUTS. With electric bass…piece of cake(atleast i thought it was). Upright…its like starting over, not knowing whats going on. But thats the joy of it..starting from the bottom and working your way to the top. I had thought over a million times to take it back to the music store and getting my money back. What kinda musician i would be if i had done that? Coward! Great works, come great respect. I have a new found respect for Upright bassist across the globe!
Check out the vid below, lots of mistakes. Charge it to my mind, not my heart…i’ll post more soon
