Part 2 of our interview with NOLA/Bay Area bassist Ted Gould III aka Blyss — Guru level dos and don’ts to get and keep the gig!
Ted’s an educator, a vlogger, an Instagram lesson machine, a sideman extraordinaire.
You’ve seen him in ads for Aguilar and MONO, among others.
He’s produced some beautiful interpretations of popular music on solo bass.
And what’s more, he’s just a super great guy. Down to earth. Wise but humble. Salt of the earth, as they say.
(We liked him before he came on the show, just to be clear.)
He’s also now a solo artist in his own right. We’re thrilled to know him and support him on this journey…
And we want you to do the same.
That’s why we’re asking you to click here and support his new album as The Brother Theodore Project.
Even a $10 donation will get you an extra on this project launch!
In the meantime, whether you donate or not, we hope you enjoy this episode.
As we promised, the audio for this week should be much improved. For those of you who rode it out last week, you have our most humble apologies and our gratitude!
But as a reward, this week we deliver unto you a FREE bucket of amazing, timely advice from someone who’s been there, in the trenches, as a blue-collar bassist, just like many of you. Hustling gigs from the churches to the nightclubs, always behaving himself as a gentleman along the way — and trying to deliver as a true professional.
This is an episode you will not want to miss. And if you get even one minute, one iota of wisdom or enjoyment, we would ask you to do one thing for us: throw Ted a few bucks!
Help him finish his new album via his Kickstarter. It’s all or nothing. We bassists need to stick together, and here’s your chance to help. Even just a small $5 donation will make a difference!
Most of all, we’d like to thank our friend and guest, Ted Gould III aka Blyss, for being part of our show.
Thank you in advance and keep it low!
