Barry Bales has been among the most celebrated upright bassists in bluegrass and country music this past 20 years. He has multiple Grammy awards, plus trophies from the International Bluegrass Music Association and the Country Music Association. His bass is featured in recordings from Alison Krauss & Union Station where he is the full-time bass player, and in films like Walk The Line and O Brother, Where Art Thou.

In this two hour and 30 minute DVD, Barry shares his thoughts on the appropriate role of the bass, and demonstrates many of the techniques that have made him a first call musician in both bluegrass and country music. AcuTab's John Lawless leads Barry through a discussion of his background and influences before they move on to songs. Barry also covers important topics like tone production, walking bass, percussive 'ghost' notes, and more.
