Giants of Bass – Marcus Miller

'Miller Time!' was written to represent Marcus Miller and features some advanced applications of the slap bass technique. This piece has a moderately slow tempo and is representative of the music that Marcus has written and performed on albums such as Silver Rain, Renaissance and Afrodeezia. It features slap and pop grooves built around minor pentatonic and blues scales, the use of the technique to play melodic and unison lines, and a bass solo which evolves naturally out of the main groove.
