In this episode we intend to broadcast green music: we save some electricity. No electric bass. The big doghouse or double-bass is ruling! In roots music that huge and powerful instrument sets the beat and the melodic line and sounds like a heartbeat. The doghouse, stand-up, slap bass, double-bass or whatever it’s called is the pulse of country, blues and rockabilly. Even no need for a drummer if the double-bass player can slap. Some can even sing simultaneously! With the four strings elastically pulled or slapped against the neck, give an ear to Bill Black, Willie Dixon, Lee Rocker among other players and enjoy the real honky-tonk sound.
