Marcus Miller – ‘Frankenstein’

Course Duration: 1 Hour & 35 Minutes | Difficulty Level: 8

This song can be found on Marcus Miller’s 2005 album Silver Rain. It was originally written and released by Edgar Winter, back in 1972. This version is one of Marcus Miller's most popular songs. All of the unison lines are played with the slap technique, and Marcus adds in a fantastic solo. As is typical of his playing, the solo builds in its intensity, culminating in some complex double thumbed lines and – unusually for Marcus – a two-handed tapping lick. Unsurprisingly, this course is best suited to bassists with an advanced level of competency with the slap bass technique.
