How Flea Plays Bass

The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea looks like a War Boy who happens to be a beast on the bass. But as Polyphonic points out, it’s ultimately his ability to harmonize with his bandmates – especially as a crest to John Frusciante’s minimal licks – that makes him special.

Independence Day: A Star Wars Story
