Thundercat: NPR Tiny Desk Concert

Thundercat has a style all his own. His playing is unbelievable and his songs are earworms. That’s evidenced on his recent NPR Tiny Desk Concert from October.

With bandmates Dennis Hamm, Justin Brown, and Miguel Antwood Ferguson, the bassist plays through three tracks from his album, Drunk: “Lava Lamp,” “Friend Zone,” and “Them Changes.” Check out his chording technique on that last song.
