Watch A 7-Year-Old Bassist Play Along With Mac Miller
What were you doing when you were 7 years old?
Likely nothing as astonishing as Aron Hodek. According to his Instagram account (aronthebassist), this child from Slovakia loves watching Tiny Desk videos and playing along with them. Here, he accompanies Mac Miller's Tiny Desk concert — and, in particular, Thundercat's bass line (look out Thundercat) in "What's the Use?" Aron's cadence and groove were pretty damn remarkable and put a huge smile on my face.
So a big hello from the Tiny Desk to Aron Hodek! We love you and thank you for the smile. In the words of Mac Miller himself, "You can love it — it just freaks me out."
