200 bassists from the Rockin’ 1000 played the Queen and David Bowie classic “Under Pressure.”
Musician and content creator Charles Berthoud led the group of bassists. They played a rendition of the famous bass line of “Under Pressure” at the Allianz Parque in São Paulo, Brazil.
Berthoud started creating content on Fiverr, teaching others how to play bass and continued doing it on his YouTube channel until he collaborated with other musicians.
His recent video with 200 bassists was not the first time he played with the members of Rockin’ 1000. Days before the video was shared, Berthoud slapped his bass with 200 drummers in the same stadium.
While the Rockin’ 1000 is already familiar with playing “Under Pressure,” since the song was included on their set list in their recent concert in Paris.
Watch the 200 bassists play “Under Pressure” in the video below. Some of the comments read:
“I couldn’t imagine the amount of pressure everyone was under to not screw it up.”
“huuge props to the people who organised this event and mixed the audio – it cannot be easy to make something like this sound so good and they succeeded 1000%”
“From Zero to Hero, you’ve done it all because you never gave up on Bass, even if it took years to gain more attention!”
