Wrap Rap: Bass Player LIVE!

MASSIVE thanks to all who came out to BPL this last weekend! We could bore you with a laundry list of superlatives describing the event, but let’s settle here for a mere few: Super fun; Truly humbling; Deeply inspiring.

MASSIVE thanks to all who came out to BPL! We could bore you with a laundry list of superlatives describing the event, but let’s settle here for a mere few: Super fun; Truly humbling; Deeply inspiring.

If there was a single frustration about the weekend, it’s the simple fact that (short of time travel) there was no way to attend every single clinic. But fret not: Our video guru Tim Tsuruda is sifting through the 16 hours of video from ALL the clinics, and we’ll post it as soon as we can. In the meantime, check out the pictures and short video clips here.

In the coming days we’ll be looking back at our favorite moments, and we always want to hear how to make next year even better. Let us know what you’d like to see next time by sounding off on our forums, here.

For me personally, the weekend served as a reminder of what a cool breed bass players are: super supportive, community minded, friendly, and talented. Thanks for making me proud to be part of the crew. —Brian Fox
