Ben Hands: Solo Bass Cover of Adele’s “Someone Like You”

Yep, we dig it when bassists take pop tunes and turn up the awesome meter by arranging them as a solo bass piece.

Here’s Ben Hands doing his thing to make Adele’s “Someone Like You” way cooler. (We may be biased).

  1. very nice indeed. by the way, what is that bass?, monorail bridge? Ibanez BTB?

  2. He did a really great job of balancing the picking parts and the tapping parts, both dynamically and rhythmically. A lot of the time during these solo bass pieces, players loose the rhythm and the feeling when they switch back and forth, to where there is obviously a “tapping” section and an obviously a “picking” one. I really dig this.


    @Nathaniel York, it looks like a BTB to me.

  3. little known fact…he can tell what tone your fart is…no joke, I know him :-)

  4. Thank you for all your kind words everyone! I really appreciate it! :-)
