Extreme – ‘Midnight Express’

This piece of music was originally written and performed on the acoustic guitar by Extreme’s Nuno Bettencourt. I’ve always loved it and have spent many years figuring out the best way to translate it onto the bass. Fortunately, it works well on the instrument, although as you’ll see from the video, it is a very advanced piece to play. Your slap technique, chord strumming, and palm muting skills will also be put to the test here!
