This week we’re looking at two epic bass lines from two different generations. First, we listen to @The Beatles 1966 classic "Taxman" with @PAUL McCARTNEY on bass. Then, we compare that with the modern groove of @Thundercat in his funky performance on his song "Them Changes."
I’m @Jack Conte the CEO of @Patreon and one-half of the bands @Scary Pockets and @PomplamooseMusic.
Joining me today are 3 of my best musician friends;
@Leland Sklar the most prolific bassist of all time, he’s played with Phil Collins, James Taylor, Carol King and Toto.
@Nicole Row who plays bass with @Panic! At The Disco
@ryanlerman a professional guitarist the other half of Scary Pockets
Here are our recommendations for our desert island bassists:
@Leland Sklar: Ray Brown, James Jameson, Carol Kaye, Jack Bruce, and John Entwistle
@Nicole Row: @Derrick Hodge
Here is the music we discussed in the episode;
The Beatles - Taxman
Thundercat - Them Changes
