Without having to drive all around St. Louis for high school pickup, soccer practices and games, and baseball practices and games, I have found myself with a little time on my hands. Other than writing more on the ol’ blog, I have also picked up the bass and poked around on the piano more often than I have in years.
There is one song I have always wanted to play on bass, and if I could master that one song, I would feel like I finally figured out how to play that thing. That song is the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ version of “Higher Ground.” Flea is a monster on that song (and every song he plays) and pretty much offers a master class on how to play funk and rock bass. Amazing!
So, for today’s Song of the Day, imagine Flea and the rest of the boys jumping around the stage back in the 80’s and 90’s in nothing but a sock!
