Discovery: Mike Hall Bass

Mike Hall Bass is the musical moniker for American bassist Mike Hall, who uses a distinct creative approach to solo bass playing that involves a blend of harmonics, two handed tapping, slap, pop and flamenco techniques.

Here, Mike has covered the Foo Fighters song Everlong on the bass – whilst it might seem an odd concept at first, it really works well. Mike has a fantastic approach and technique to playing the bass and somehow he manages to make it seem like there are more instruments playing – check out the video below to watch him perform Everlong!
