Bass Songs for Beginners – Treasure – Bruno Mars –> In this series of bass songs for beginners, we wanted to include a few songs that use the thump, pop, and slap technique. This song is fairly simple without too much complexity. Bruno Mars bassist, Jamareo “Jam” Artis is playing these octaves throughout the entire song: G#, F, G, C and A#. He’s also using a thump and pop technique. So this song would be great for beginners to get practice playing slap bass, while also working on octaves.
Here’s CoverSolutions with a bass cover of “Treasure” with play along tabs.
Here’s a video of me playing “Treasure” using thump and pop technique – I use my thumb to “thump” more than in the video above. I don’t really need to, but I think it gives the bass line a more funky sound conducive to Bruno Mars 👍
