The Bass of Jack Casady is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2 .
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Give the Bass player some! Mr. Casady is giving away all of his secrets and it's so graciously cool! His emphasis is on the "melodic" approach to enhance the groove and having some fun with it. There is a segment in which Mr. Casady describes how he enjoys playing the blues because when you factor in the interactions with the crowd, the other musicians and your own feeling there is never a dull moment or redundancy. Thanks for the attached sheet music for the great music played in the video.
