Take a Lesson from Carol Kaye

"Wichita Lineman"
"These Boots Are Made For Walkin'"
"Sloop John B"

What do all these famous 60s songs have in common? Carol Kaye, a member of the unsung studio band The Wrecking Crew, composed and played all of their time-tested bass lines. For decades, Kaye's work on countless studio sessions including Frank Zappa's Freak Out!and Quincy Jones' many film soundtracks, went relatively unknown. However, in recent years, the work of many crate diggers has uncovered Carol Kaye's work in pioneering the electric bass as we know it today. 

At Irvington Vinyl, we're happy to announce that our underground archives have discovered this gem, How to Play the Electric Bass, from Kaye's series of instructional books and records. Whether you're new to the instrument, or a seasoned player, learn technique from the pioneer of the instrument herself with this piece of history.
