Guy Pratt’s Arthritic Thumb Slaps That Funky Bass!
Guy Pratt, who played bass for Pink Floyd after Roger Waters left in the 1980s, has been doing some explainer/tutorial videos on Youtube for fans to enjoy. His show is called “Lockdown Licks”.
Guy has played bass on lots of famous songs and albums over the years and has a rather impressive resume. He is currently up to episode 4 where he covers a couple of Pink Floyd classics.
Fans that have heard the re-recorded and re-mixed Later Years box set material will notice a lot of Guy’s original material was toned down – the band seemingly wanting a less 80s feel and more a timeless mix. Guy mentions this awkward situation in the video.
Anyway, here are the 4 episodes that are currently up, with Pink Floyd being the 4th one. Make sure you check out NPF’s interview with Guy Pratt featuring questions from fans.
