It. Gets. Funkier.
Hot on the heels of the heels of the releasing Visualizing Joe Dart, I realized we needed to go deeper; we needed to get funkier. Who is funkier than Joe Dart? One bass player comes to mind; MonoNeon. MonoNeon is a bass player that I’ve been following on YouTube for several years. His manifesto promotes daily self practice in a way that inspires me every time I read it.
Part of MonoNeon’s practice is playing along to other YouTube videos. For this project, I thought a perfect fit would be the video in which he played along with Mr. Talkbox’s cover of Vulfpeck’s Back Pocket, especially because Vulfmon did a re-cut of it which was also posted to YouTube. In my mind, and in the minds of many, it is considered the Greatest Cover Of All Time (GCOAT).
