Level 42 – ‘Sandstorm’

'Sandstorm' is the opening track on the first album that Level 42 recorded - The Early Tapes. This is one of the band's best-known instrumental pieces and was a key part of their live set during their formative years. Written by Mark King and Wally Badarou, the track features some classic Mark King grooves, which have made it a very popular piece with bass players over the years. For subscribers to our video courses, the notation/TAB and the backing track used in the main performance are available to download using the link above.
