Marcus Miller – Bass Guitar – The Nightfly

Have a  listen to this cool bass line by Marcus Miller – it’s Donald Fagin’s ‘The Nightfly.’  My friend Peter loves Steely Dan and Donald Fagin and sent me this link because he knows I like Marcus Miller.

In fact I like it so much, I’ve transcribed it in notation and bass tab for this week’s issue of First Bass And Beyond

Marcus Miller – Bass Guitar – What is Hip

Been watching some Marcus Miller clips recently – as you can probably tell! – here is another great clip!  It’s Marcus Miller’s take on What Is Hip (the great Tower Of Power classic).  Again, it’s played with a combination of slap and double thumb.  Marcus shows why he is one of the originals of the bass guitar!

Marcus Miller- Bass Guitar – Teen Town

Here’s a great clip of Marcus Miller playing Jaco’s composition Teen Town – but rather than play the line fingerstyle he’s slapping and double thumbing.  Incredible!
