BASSEDU By Rajoe Bobby Vega’s Gosh Groove from the Video Here we are again with the next lesson… after a broken nose and a marriage (both on my part, lucky me!) Although, lessons usually come without talk on the video, this time I felt it was necessary to do a bit of show-n-tell with talking, since I found so many little details to pay attention to that written advice alone could not suffice on Bobby’s piece. I do not enjoy watching myself | 08.15 talking, but I hope you do (smile). Bobby Vega is one of the coolest cats around; he is the counter-argument for pick-hater bassists. His pumping lines are super-cool, musical and a joy to listen to, no matter whether he plays slapping, finger style, or with a pick.
