    Our friends at Notreble.com are featuring a new bass transcritpion. Here's an excerpt:

    This month’s transcription is bassist Tal Wilkenfeld’s fantastic solo on the Jeff Beck classic “Cause We’ve Ended As Lovers”. There are several live recordings of this track, but the one transcribed here is from the Crossroads Guitar Festival from 2007.

    There's a pdf to download as well.

    Check out the entire feature HERE.

    Esperanza Spalding

    A while ago, I had the pleasure of interviewing Esperanza Spalding for Thunder Row. Since that time, a lot of folks have joined the Row so we thought, since Ms. Spalding won Best New Artist at the Grammy's, we'd re-run the interview of this exceptional talent, so you could get to know her better. Read on!

    Roy told me to pass this along to y'all so, being someone who always does what he's told - unless I'd rather not, or I'm having a pedicure - here it is. (By the way, not only does Roy endorse this project, I do! What more credibility could you possibly want?)

    Roy wrote: "This is a Kickstarter project from the Creative Director and Producer of my acclaimed Teach Me Bass Guitar Series, David A. Crossman. David is a true Renaissance Man who writes, directs, markets, writes songs and is in general one of the most creative people I know!"
