Here's a funky slap bass groove for your track! It's played on a Marcus Miller Fender Jazz bass. It's inspired by all my funk bass heroes: Marcus, Victor Wooten, Stanley Clarke, Louis Johnson, Larry Graham, Bootsy Collins. It'll get people shakin' in their seats! Bass,
This track has the David Holmes "Ocean's Eleven" vibe. A funky hip hop beat, mixed with a thick bass guitar, and big spaghetti western tremeloed guitar hits. This is great for those retro scenes with a modern twist. Instrumental, Jazz, Acid Jazz
