i just came across this guy....im instantly hooked though.

dude does some slapping and he is playing left handed on a 5 string bass stung right handed.

lots of left handed players....not many play strung opposite though.

hendrix did it though not in the early days of his career.
my boy doyle bramhall plays that way too.

enjoy

Amazing...I play guitar and bass...but with him? Upside down, left handed, 5 string, high-1st string on top? I can see what he's doing and understand his riffs...but he makes my head hurt thinking about it!!!

Amazingly good....

PS TST: Ive met MItch Mitchell from Hendrix Experience..and confirmed 2 things. Hendrix could play the guitar the correct way-right handed...and the correct way left handed...and upside down left handed...
and upside down rt handed.

Also, when he died? He was getting ready to record with an orchestra...the mind boggles!!!!

Thanks for the 'thumps!!!

Serious funk right there.
That is actually just a normal strung right handed 5 string bass, he is just playing it upside down.
Back in my bar playing days, we had a guy come around on open jam nights that was a lefty and he would play our bassist's axe upside down just like this guy.
He was really good too, but not as good as this Larry Williams.
But then we only played rock and metal, so we might have been slowing him down lol.

Usually don't enjoy soloists, but somehow glad that decided to watch this.
Really enjoyed the melodic feel he has. Sweet tone as well. S&F.
