Pete O’Neill: Drive

Pete O’Neill sent us his newest video, and we’re impressed as always. In this clip, Pete turns The Cars’ hit “Drive” into a solo fretless bass arrangement.

“For this one, I tried to get a Marcelo Feldman backbeat using a John Mayer style strum, while using natural harmonics for the melody and harmony parts. I feel like I’m finally starting to find my niche!” Pete shared.

“If anyone is still interested in the harmonic diagram page, it’s available for free at,” he added.

    Very nice version of this song. Almost sounds like it was written with solo bass in mind – Ha I dig!
