A bass guitar lesson from one of the greats
Steve | February 27, 2011 | 8:40 pm

The Everett-born Carol Kaye is said to be one of the most recorded bass players in history, with over 10,000 tracks to her credit. As a child in 1941, Carol’s parents (both professional musicians) moved from Everett to Los Angeles, where she eventually thrived in the growing jazz and pop music scene in LA. Her Fender bass can be heard on recordings ranging from the Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds, to Joe Cocker’s Feelin’ Alright, to Phil Spector’s Wall of Sound session work. Kaye played 12-string guitar on Frank Zappa’s groundbreaking album Freak Out!. Drawing upon her wealth of experience, in the accompanying interview, Carol talks about Monk Montgomery, Jaco Pastorius, and the greats of bass guitar, and gives a bass oriented music theory lesson.
