Funny Video – All 88 piano keys on the bass (no treble!)!

Happy Birthday, Notreble!

We are celebrating our favorite online bass magazine by taking the “notreble” idea all the way, asking the question:

Can you play all the 88 notes of the piano on basses?

Turned out that notreble part all the way up was doable with a bit of finesse, but we ran into a problem at the very end… Note the running keyboard on top of the screen!

Watch the notreble 10th Anniversary Talking Technique episode, complete with an insane PDF, a card playing poker cat (if you live in LA you need a cat harness, folks, we got coyotes!), a view of our lovely garden, a Beatles song and the dominant 7 13 chord here:


Read the episode on notreble here.

Enjoy and help it go viral!

    Yep, that was a pretty amusing video with some seriously(!) good bass playing. I was a little up tight when you were hammering on the tambourine, so thanks for noting in the credits that no tambourines, etc were harmed in the making…

      Yes, we must protect the tambourines 🙂
      We had a lot of fun making this video, including Akai the poker cat. Thanks for commenting!
