Giants of Bass – Larry Graham

'Graham Crackers' was written to represent Larry Graham's pioneering bass techniques and reflects the work that he recorded with his own group, Graham Central Station. The piece features an aggressively performed bass part which features a powerful slap groove and many of Larry's preferred phrasing techniques such as vibrato, trills, and shakes. His use of effects pedals is also represented here, during the intro and re-intro sections.
