Laszlo Demeter: Acoustic Bass Arrangement of Massive Attack’s “Teardrop”

We love to see it when bassist get creative to tackle their favorite songs. Here’s Laszlo Demeter playing Massive Attack’s “Teardrop” using only his six-string acoustic bass.

The bassist covers every part of the tune, from using the bass’s body for percussion to using the strings above the nut for sound effects. And of course, he lays down that sweet, sweet bass.
