Murder On The Dancefloor was a big hit in Europe in 2001 for English pop star Sophie Ellis-Bextor.
The movie Saltburn recently featured it, propelling it backing into the Top 10 in the UK and the Billboard 100 in the States.
Guy Pratt's disco infused bass line on the song is a classic and that's what I'm going to teach you in this bass tutorial.
There are two main sections featuring octave skips, chromatic movement, 1/16th note rhythms, and ghost notes. It's a busy yet tasteful line that is also quite challenging.
