Jaco the Film

So.. we all love Jaco right?   I'm sure most of us have been influenced, affected, inspired, blown away, or at the very least moderately moved by his music...   As I'm sure most of you know there is a film.. Jaco the Film due to be released this spring... Robert Trujillo, the bassist from Metallica, has primarily funded it out of pocket... and now he's looking for some help with pre-orders and other goodies... 

Let's face it... the DVD itself it's going to be a great addition to your collection ..  :)   Heck.... give someone the hint saying you want it for Christmas!! 

If you want to help out .. you can go pre-order the DVD or other goodies ( you can even buy a bass of doom replica used in the film, or skype bass lessons from Jerry Jemmott, Robert Trujillo, and Jaco's son Felix Pastorius.... cool ) .. 

here's the link.. 

If you can't buy anything you can help out by just spreading the word... share the above link.. go to my facebook and share from there.. or Twitter..

Victor's way is your way

Victor Wooten is a bassist.  That's an understatement.   Victor Wooten is so much more than a bassist.  He's a musician, an educator, a philosopher, a wordsmith, a curator of all things zen and lovely in this musical world.  There is no greater example than this wonderful video that was released as part of TED Talks Check it out... and then check it out again... in fact.  Start every day as a musician by listening to and/or watching this video.

What I mean by that is, their free services give the outside world the impression that I’m an organized, punctual, prepared, professional bassist and I keep getting hired. Want in on a secret? Yes, I’ve enjoyed a 20+ year career as a performing and recording bassist in Prince Edward Island while working full time in IT, teaching bass at the Holland College School of Performing Arts and UPEI, raising five little kids and sometimes seeing my lovely wife; however, my life is full of daily challenges that seek to make me fail in my music career. I'm naturally disorganized, forgetful, and full of procrastination. Enter Google, add my Smartphone, and watch as my chaotic life is turned into beautifully manageable bits. This music career of mine is not limited to the instrument I play, the notes I choose, the styles I enjoy, or the gigs I get. It has a thousand tiny pieces that make up who I am as a musician, which translates to who I am as a pr

I do and promise to love you, my new bass amp, forever

I'm trying out a new bass cabinet.  It doesn't matter which one.  But I've got that burning question in my mind... is this the right cabinet.  Is this the right amp setup for me?  Is this ...the one? It's almost like a marriage.  You try it out.. you court the amp...or rather it courts you.  It seems sexier and promises to do things that other amps won't do.  But will that last?  Is it really..the one?  Do you give it a ring and promise to unconditionally love it and will it unconditionally love you at every gig, rehearsal, practice, etc, etc? What methods do you use to be sure you're ready to settle down with the amp that doesn't mind you eating crackers on stage with it?
