CHILD BITE Teach You to Bass With Just One Finger

It’s been a big year for Detroit punk/noise band Child Bite, who back in April released their Phil Anselmo-produced Negative Noise on Anselmo’s own Housecore Records label. They’ve also hopped on a bunch of interesting tours, including playing direct support to Voivod, and are going to head out with Lord Dying in August for what’s probably gonna be the most straight-up fun tour of the summer.

We’ve got an exclusive little bass lesson for you, from slinger Sean Clancy, for the track “Video Blood.” This is more of a lesson in, uh, let’s call it “style,” which is critical for keeping the groove in the rhythm section! Check out the clip below:
