If you haven't already, take the time to listen/watch Keiko's interviews from NAMM. She's talking one-on-one with the best bassists in the world, guys it would cost you $1000 an hour to get lessons from, and they're handing out free advice, tips, and info. You owe it to yourself to listen up. FYI, Keiko attended NAMM on her own dime so she could bring all this info and these interviews to the Row. Make it worth her while, give her a shout out.

Gary Karr b. November 20, 1941 in Los Angeles, California, is an American classical double bass virtuoso and teacher.
Although he comes from seven generations of bassists, he was not encouraged by them to go into music. In an interview with ActiveBass magazine he said that he has no contact with the professional bassists in his family.

Without going into too many of the tedious details, some of Keiko's video interviews were just too massive in size to post for your enjoyment, so we have one video and two audio-only interviews. Still wonderful, for sure! We might be able to make the originals available later through DropBox, but we wanted to get the content ...

Okay, Viewers! Here is Keiko's photo collection. This is not EVERYTHING she took, but mostly those pix related to bass.
We'll probably make the whole thing available in ZIP files at a later date.
The pic report can be seen on the Thunder Row Blog.
Comments on the blog are moderated, but feel free to make 'em anyway. I'll come by later and approve them for yas!!
Okay...next, we'll move on to her videos and Artist interviews! Stay tuned!!

What is the NAMM Show, Who Can Attend, and What The Heck Happens There?
Founded in 1901, NAMM is one of the largest music product trade shows in the world. Every January, NAMM swarms into the Anaheim Convention Center in California - this year between Thursday, the 24th and Sunday, the 27th. Although the name stands for the National Association of Music Merchants, it has evolved into an international association that includes members in the commercial, reselling, affiliate, and manufacturing fields. (The smaller Summer NAMM Show is held in Nashville, TN.)
