New strings?

We're loving John Taylor's new Stone Love Bass Odyssey lockdown series. Each episode features a breakdown of his bass part on a classic Duran Duran song. And this week's is a big one.

Following Planet Earth (opens in new tab) and Girls On Film (opens in new tab), this time it's Rio; an absolute beast of a bass track. Watch it below.
