Steve Metcalf: All Bass Cover of Lorde’s “Royals”

Steve Metcalf is back with an all bass arrangement of Lorde’s “Royals,” and it’s incredible. He nails the melody at the very top of the bass’s range while laying his own tight harmonies and bass lines.

The video editing is great, too. Check out the closeups of the bass strings as he plays – you can see the way the string actually vibrates.
