It’s been busy here at Casa de RoyMusicUSA so this will be a quickie (“that’s what she said”). Below is a video of the Berry Oakleys’s isolated bass track to the Allman Brother’s Ramblin’ Man off their 1973 album Brothers And Sisters. The Allman Brothers were one of my favorite bands and were a major influence on both my guitar and bass playing. I don’t know how they are able to isolate the bass and drums so well but I wish I had this when I was leaning to play Ramblin’ Man in cover bands. I have previously stated my high regard for Berry Oakley, who I feel is one of the great unsung bassists of rock so here is an opportunity for you to appreciate his great melodic bass playing without the distraction of those annoying guitarist, vocalists, etc.
