Fernando Molinari: “Taffontry 20mg” Country/Fusion Slap Bass

Yes, you read that right: Country/Fusion slap bass.

Brazilian bassist Fernando Molinari posted this play-along of the song “Taffontry 20mg” from his album Identidade, which is kind of like a honky tonk song on speed.

More of the fusion part of the equation comes out at 1:55 when Molinari plays some blazing tapping lines in unison with the guitar. I’m surprised his fingers didn’t start smoking by the end!
