Dig the fashion. Dig the Gibson bass. Dig that bad ass bass line. Dig on the Brothers Johnson covering Shuggie Otis' "Strawberry Letter #23". Any good funk tune fill one or more of the following requirements:
- It must be about sex.
- It must be repetitive as hell.
- It doesn't make any sense lyrically.
"Strawberry Letter #23" fulfills that last requirement big time. No matter - it's an amazing groove.

Some more slapping, this time from Slick Joe Fick and on an upright bass. I love this - if he played like this on tunes, I'd say it was the sort of selfish, over-the-top playing I despise. But this is more like a demo reel to me, showing what can be done on an upright using the slap method. Joe's got some other clips online (he was one of the bass players in "Walk The Line") that are more groove oriented, so check 'em out.
