Have Bass Will Travel finalists

OK…  our readers have spoken. We have our six finalists for the Have Bass Will Travel video contest.

The contest started as a fun promotion for Alison Krauss & Union Station bass man Barry Bales’ AcuTab instructional DVD, A Solid Foundation To Acoustic Bass. We invited participants to create their own video in response to one Barry made about getting his upright bass around.

Bluegrass Blog readers chose the top six entries after our staff were unable to reach a consensus. Here are our finalists, along with how the votes broke down. 

Melissa Triplett – Bass Talk Weekly    694 votes    10.73%
Laura Hartman – I’m home Mom    684 votes    10.57%
David Morris – inflatable bass    518 votes    8.01%
Jen Dunfield – hound dog delivery    502 votes    7.76%
Andy Blevins – Yes… hippies!    408 votes    6.31%
Dan Booth – too cold to pump   368 votes    5.69%

We will send each of them:

From the six finalists, Barry will choose a Grand Prize winner who will receive:

Thanks to everyone who submitted an entry, and to our sponsors for their generous contributions to our list of prizes!

We’ll announce Barry’s choice as soona s he a chance to pick one. He is recording now with Alison Krauss & Union Station, so we’ll cut him a little slack if he can’t drop everything and get right on this.
