Love Plus One — Bass Lesson

Even if you don't play the bass, this is still nice. This song is, as my dad would say, is fabulous! Enjoy this lesson from a guy who really nails it, note for note (although I'm not sure I agree with all his harmonic embeleshments).

As with most of the songs on Haircut 100's debut album, “Pelican West,” this classic tune evokes in me some extremely vivid, happy memories from the early 80s. Les Nemes, whose style I sought to emulate somewhat with my own bass playing back then, absolutely kills on this track from the band's first of only two albums — major bummer that.

I'm not sure who this musician is, who's providing this tasty video tutorial, but he knows what he's doing.
