La Vague: Straight Contrariwise – Resophonic Bass & Vocals

Here at No Treble HQ, we like things that are a little out of the ordinary. Check out this video of La Vague performing their song “Straight Contrariwise”.

The duo is made up of Francesca Pirami on vocals and Alessandro Corsi on resophonic bass, stomp box guitar and back up vocals.

Corsi’s unique style incorporates finger-style plucking and flamenco-style strumming with his bass lines. Make sure to check out the breakdown at 2:29 for some pretty smoking licks.

Not only is Corsi playing the bass like a boss, he’s playing the guitar the way it should be. (Just kidding. Sort of.)
