Bass player Bernard Harris is not “all about that bass.” But you wouldn’t know it from hearing him play. He can mesmerize an audience with his funky and soulful instrumental solos on bass guitar. Most bassists function strictly as background players, usingtheirinstrumenttokeeprhythmandbeat. Harristakesthe bass guitar to an entirely different level, using it to create melody, and in the process, praising God with his marvelous talents.
When left-handed Harris first began to play, he learned upside
down on a right-handed bass, and after discovering he was playing incorrectly, rather than starting over, decided to continue with this uniquely different playing style. And so he plays upside down, even to this day.
