Larry Graham: The Origins of Thumping, Plucking… and Bass History
We need to give him his flowers now. We can all agree that Larry Graham might be the baddest thumper of all time.
In this clip from 1980, he gives us a bit of bass history. Larry breaks it down with a live drummer and the funk doesn’t let up!
There are a few other clips of this performance on Youtube, which shows that beautiful Jazz Bass in better lighting. ALL WHITE WITH GOLD HARDWARE?? Check it out!
