(Videos) Billy Sheehan bass clinic Mexico

#1 Post by rub_800 » Thu Jun 26, 2008 2:50 pm

Billy was brougth by Yamaha to do some clinic in México, and he went to my city. It was a real pleasure to meet him. He is a very nice guy, with a good sense of humor and very kind and down to earth. He even lend his bass to a player of the audience to teach some pinch harmonics!.

He played some solos and did some demostrations of his rig and his techniques, he spend a good amount of time responding various questions, some of them were actually good questions and some (Can you play a song of Victor Wooten? :roll: ) .. he even talked about his personal life, his parents and his girl, he was very open to answer almost anything.

At the end he signed me some Vai DVD's and my Guitar strap, I'll never wash that again, but is a white strap what a problem hehe.. He also posed for a photo.

Too bad he didn't play a song or two and he did just shred, but it was amazing anyway. So here are some of the videos of that evening:

Cool vids. I think Billy always comes across as a pretty decent bloke. Do you know that he's Scientologist?
