Percussive Slap Bass (Mark King Style)
Mark King of Level 42 is one of the great slap bass geniuses. Seriously, the guy can fire the drummer and replace his part in the rhythm department, because his way of making the bass a percussive instrument is just unbelievable.
Seriously influenced by him in my slap bass playing, I shot this lesson for you to get acquainted with this awesome technique to get percussion out of the bass WHILE PLAYING MUSIC (Yeah, you heard me). Just listen to gems like Mr. Pink (There’s a version out there with an amazing solo intro by Mark… Warning: You’ll want to give up bass playing the moment you hear this), and you’ll see where this technique can get you.
