    Is he using his signature MM model in those recordings?

    He has plucked songs on all of his solo albums.

    He often uses hard plucks to get a "snappy" sounds though, which sounds a lot like his slapped sounds.

  7. Check his site and see.

    I first thought that you're pulling my leg, but according to his discography marcus plays on one track on Whiplash Smile. How cool is that? :)

    Marcus' playing on Donald Fagen's "The Nightfly" is amongst his finest work ever. Without one single slapnote played.
  11. I must agree the bassline on The Nightfly is one finest ever. Marcus at his best! (It´s really fun to play)
