Thread: Wilco Bass Lesson from Cat Popper

  1. #1

    Wilco Bass Lesson from Cat Popper

    I captured this vid of Catherine Popper’s bass playing last night...she was not aware I was going for the close up. so I asked for permission to share and thankfully she says yes it’s cool of course. please keep in mind this is a candid video that was not intended to teach anything or be a lesson, or how to do something “by the books” or otherwise. Just thought it would be cool to take a closer look at her moves. also this was just a rehearsal gig where they play super loose. enjoy!

    Thanks. I am in the midst of rebuilding my plucking technique so it is interesting watching someone else :-)

    The sound is coming from the guitar I think.

    thats Norah Jones, famous singer but also known for hauting tones on the guitar. she has a 65 Fender Mustang, several vox (pathfiner and other) amps. a danalectro cool cat trem, boss blues driver, and ibanez analog delay (ad-9?) pedals

    Ah, I thought that was Norah. Particularly 'cuz the Pathfinder (15R). :) Great little amp, ridiculously good value, hangs right in there with my '68 Princeton in stereo or wet/dry setups.
