Hey, James here!
Mark King's slap bass skills are out of this world. It's like his fingers have a mind of their own, bouncing all over those strings and creating this super cool, rhythmic vibe. When he starts slapping and popping, it's like a whole groove party. Whether he's jamming with Level 42 or doing his own thing, you can't help but bob your head to that funky beat. It's like he's got the secret recipe for making bass sound insanely awesome.
That is why I was blown away when I heard Sian's slap bass skills for the first time!
So in this lesson, eBassGuitar coach, Sian Unwin will teach you her tips, tricks, and essential exercises on how to play slap bass FAST like Mark King through the iconic bass line of "Almost There" by Level 42.
