Norwood Fisher’s (not so) Secret Bass Techniques

Happy New Year y’all… This year I’ll play more bass! That’s one of my very few resolutions for 2011! And I think I’ll start with the secret tricks in this video of Norwood Fisher aka the insane bassist of the most awesome live band ever Fishbone!

I always liked Norwood’s style of bass. I’ve never analysed his playing but I would never have thought that someone could get structured bass lines from an apparently anarchic right hand slapping technique! But maybe Norwood’s variations on right hand technique are not so messy after all!

And as I’m posting about Fishbone, here is something I can’t wait to watch: Everyday Sunshine a documentary about Fishbone to celebrate their 25 years anniversary!
