Craig Butterfield: Bass Quartet Arrangement of Frank Zappa’s “Peaches En Regalia”

We’re big fans of Frank Zappa here at No Treble HQ.

So when Craig Butterfield sent in his all bass version of “Peaches En Regalia,” we were stoked.

As is par for his videos, Butterfield nails all the parts with unbelievable accuracy. All of the percussion, bass lines, melodies and solos are perfectly in place, and in a fashion that would make Zappa proud, the bassist gets some unique effects by tapping the strings with a pencil.
