01 Dave Marks Skattershot Bass wavs
01 BGM Ska W
In the October Issue of Bass Guitar Magazine I wrote a piece called 'Skattershot' to tie in with Horace Panter from the Specials being featured in the magazine.
It's a ska style tune, using elements of the Specials, Madness and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones (among others) and is a great track for intermediate players to work on the timing and feel aspects of playing Ska bass.
It's an ideal tune to use for an audition, as it shows a good grasp of timing and feel, there are a few technically tricky phrases and there's an 8 bar break for a short bass solo.
The files here include:
The Full band track.
A backing track with the bass removed.
I hope you enjoy the tracks.
