30 Amazing slap funk Bass lines

Mark King was a huge influence on me as a teenager starting out on the bass. I must have spent weeks/months in my bedroom practicing and trying to figure out what he played. Here are 30 of his classic bass lines that I’ve pieced together to make a 15 minute Slap/Funk Bass Odyssey. I start out at 122 bpm and speed up to 131 bpm about half way through. I think I’ve got most of it right? Maximum respect to Mark King, a true Legend, and of course the other members of Level 42. These guys were the soundtrack of My youth.
