“Dune Tune” by Level 42 is a fantastic track. The melodic bass line is (in my opinion) up there with the best. I learnt how to play this back in the 80’s and still enjoy playing it now. Mark King has added various parts to this piece over the years and this tutorial is based on the original recording from their debut album “Level 42”.
I’m playing it slightly differently to Mark King. He bends a lot of the notes on the G string. I use heavy strings which makes bending notes (like Mark does) almost impossible.
I also really like the tone of the bass behind the 12th fret. I,e playing the: E on the D string 14th fret, rather than: E on G string 9th fret.
