Carol Kaye video interview


Bottom End

Recommended Posts

On making music, and making a living, great six part interview with Carol Kaye.

 

You might have to scroll down to find part 1. Carol Kaye's lesson were some of the first I bought and played, she really is a great bass player, an all-around accompanist.

Guitar solos last 30 seconds, the bass line lasts for the whole song.

While I'm sure she's a fine lady, and she definitely is a killer bass player with an amazing recording career, I'll just say that some of her Motown-related history memory seems, shall we say, selective.

I'm a lot more like I am now than I was when I got here.

I read a biography of Hendrix that says hey and Buddy Miles jammed with her, and they both thought she was the absolute bomb as a bassist. To me, that's quite a recommendation.

Always remember that you�re unique. Just like everyone else.

She talks about it, it's an improvised mute. Might be a cool idea, especially with palm muting.

 

She was probably always bold, but being one of the few females slugging it out as a studio musicain, and being a damn good one, probably made her even brassier.
