Prince Playing Bass: What’s My Name

It’s no secret that Prince was a unique musician. He was an absolute master of his craft in every sense.

Known to play nearly 27 instruments, he was a force on all of them! Having worked with some monster bassists in his time, Prince was definitely one funky thumper himself!

We catch a glimpse of a past concert in The Netherlands on the tune, “What’s My Name?” You can hear the Larry Graham influence right off the bat. His usage of effects is gnarly.

Long live the Purple One!!

    THAT bass is the one bass I really want but will never have. Literally one of a kind, but so damn cool
